Daniel Levy would make huge statement if Tottenham signed Jadon Sancho

Borussia Dortmund braced for Jadon Sancho bids, discuss new contract, release clause and England

When I came through there was Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard - completely established players in the team - so it's a different environment I would say. Maybe the opportunity at Chelsea wasn't there.' Eighteen-year-old Sancho, a former member of Manchester City's youth team, insisted playing regularly was 'vital", adding: "'If you feel you're ready to play overseas and believe in yourself, why not?

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.

As a outcome of his brilliant form, the 18-year-old received a call-up to Gareth Southgate's latest England squad and has been linked with Premier League giants such as Manchester United and Liverpool, while Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur und Chelsea are also said to be monitoring the player's situation in Germany.

'I would encourage it - you see it definitely happening more and more now, ' the 19-year-old said.

If Sancho does make his debut in Croatia on Friday, which he called "a dream come true - I can't think of anything better", it will be in an empty stadium.

But the hosts won't be able to count on any support in their first home match since the World Cup with the game being played behind closed doors in Rijeka. "Schnitzel... that's really nice, but I've never tried the beer".

Sancho already has a World Cup winners' medal to his name - even though he had to watch last year's under-17 final on an internet stream after being called back from India by Dortmund. It's whatever you feel is right - everyone has a right to do what they want to do. "It's a bit hard but I've still got a long way to go to learn". If you're ready to play overseas and you believe in yourself, why not? "I believe in myself in one versus one situations". In response, Sancho failed to turn up for training, eventually sealing his move to the Bundesliga weeks later. The quality of the Championship in relation to the Premier League has been proven in recent seasons with the way newly-promoted teams have performed in the top flight, irrespective of how many English players they have.

Obviously I can't just go down the road and see my friends [anymore] but again, what I want to do long term is be a professional footballer so you've got to do what you've got to do to make myself happy and obviously make my family happy.
