But the 24-year-old has been wearing shirt No.11 for his former side Leipzig and the German national team.

"It was his last Premier League game, but the impact he has had here is huge. I want to say a big thanks to Peds and wish him well as he goes forward.

"He is here for the remainder of games, but a big player of the club leaves and the spirit of the club I saw afterwards was pretty special," quoted by Daily Star.
