English Leeds United have made contact with 2. Bundesliga outfit Hamburger SV regarding the availability of young central defender Stephan Ambrosius according to reports in Germany.
According to Norwegian journalist Jonas Giaever, the player has attracted plenty of attention recently, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side seemingly among the interested parties.
The 21-year-old has been a more regular feature for Hamburg’s reserve side in recent seasons, wracking up 32 Regionalliga Nord appearances between 2018 and 2020.
Standing at 6ft, Ambrosius has primarily featured as a centre-back, but has also filled in at full-back and central-defensive midfield occasionally.
With a year left on his deal, the Hamburg defender could become yet another promising addition to Mark Jackson’s U23s side, which has looked a bit short at centre-back and recently lost Bryce Hosannah to a Bradford City loan move.
Ambrosius is eligible to play for both Germany and Ghana, with his future at international level yet to be decided.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Football Association have recently made a move to lure the Germany-born player to play for the Black Stars.
