Sunderland star Sam Greenwood is being followed by Bundesliga outfit Stuttgart, according to the Daily Mail.

The youngster is just 16, but this hasn’t stopped him being heavily followed by the German side this summer.

He has played for England at Under-16 level and is in line to follow a number of other young English players who have gone out to play in Germany.

The Black Cats are doing everything they can to keep the player at the club offering him a new deal, but nothing has yet been agreed.

Jadon Sancho, Reece Oxford and Ademola Lookman are just some of the names who have made the move to Germany in the recent few years and the aforementioned names have seen it as a better career path for now than remaining in England.

With Sunderland now in League One, Greenwood may be offered more chances to impress than if they had remained in the Championship last season.
