Borussia Dortmund Set Huge Transfer Fee For Jadon Sancho

Share

Sancho made the bold decision to leave Manchester City for Germany a year ago, and the move has paid dividends with the forward having amassed six assists for his side in just 215 minutes of Bundesliga action.

The 18-year-old has more assists than any player in Europe this term despite only making one league start. His dream to play for his country came true when he played for the England under-17 side that reached the final of UEFA European under-17 Championship, and his performance was so phenomenal that he was named the player of the tournament.

The former Australia goalkeeper believes Sancho will learn immeasurably from making the permanent switch to Dortmund, and feels improved player welfare makes the switch overseas not such an extreme decision.

England midfielder Eric Dier believes the stream of young players coming into the worldwide fold is helping to keep the more established names on their toes.

He will be looking to impress England boss Gareth Southgate this week and could make his debut in the upcoming Nations League matches against Croatia and Spain.

England have "missed out on a generation" of footballers who decided against playing overseas, according to former Brighton defender Liam Rosenior.
