Sancho surprised by first England call-up

Jadon Sancho has no release clause in his new contract

The performances of Jadon Sancho, the young Borussia Dortmund attacker who has recently received a first senior England call-up off the back of his performances in the Bundesliga, have attracted the usual flurry of top-six transfer links but they're surely - for now, at least - fanciful.

Despite interest from other English clubs, Sancho headed to Borussia Dortmund in 2017, and showed real promise last season before really excelling in the early stages of this term.

Sancho, who left Manchester City's youth academy for the Bundesliga side past year, has had a meteoric rise to stardom, which was propelled to a new level after his call-up to England's senior squad.

Fresh from signing a new and improved deal until 2022, manager Gareth Southgate doubled down on his focus on youth with his squad selection for the upcoming Nations League double-header away to Croatia and Spain.

Nmecha said: "Jadon used to train with us at City and he was a really good player".

I was a bit surprised to be fair because obviously I'm so young, I've got a lot to learn, I'm just grateful he's seeing my progress in the Bundesliga and I'm just very thankful.

"Not everyone is comfortable moving from home".

During the interview, Melania Trump was asked about an assertion in June by Rudolph W. But I know what is right and what is wrong and what is true and what is not true'.

It'll be more playing time, at a club with a history of nurturing young talents, that allows Sancho to fulfil his masses of potential, develop further and, in the fullness of time, secure a move to a European big-hitter.

TEENAGERS Jadon Sancho and Mason Mount have urged other rising English stars to move in search of regular football at home or overseas, insisting their call-ups to the senior squad this week prove it is a risk worth taking.

"It would be a dream come true (to make my debut against Croatia)".

"I can't just go down the road and see my friends, but it's what I want to do long-term: to be a professional footballer You have to do what you have to do to make myself and my family happy". Sancho has shone playing on the left of midfield, racking up a mind-blowing nine assists for BVB already this season.

Ross Barkley makes his first England appearance since May 2016 as Southgate looks set to ditch the 3-5-2 system that worked so well in Russian Federation for a 4-3-3 with Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford flanking Harry Kane up front. As I can testify, living in a foreign country takes you way out of your comfort zone.

"I think it's vital [to be playing] because not everyone wants to play U23s. I don't know what to say to that". "You never know what could happen in the future".

Sancho got the same award at the European Under-17 championships previous year, as well as being part of the squad that won the Under-17 World Cup, although his participation was limited after being recalled by Dortmund halfway through the tournament to play for the first team.
