US men's national team youngster Julian Green, who was linked to Tottenham, may have landed himself in hot water with current employers Bayern Munich.
The youngest player in US history to score at a World Cup after netting for Team USA against Belgium in the second round of the tournament in Brazil, Julian Green's career could be in danger of stalling.
Owned by reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, the 19-year-old was linked with a £5 million move to Tottenham last summer by Metro.
Green was ultimately loaned out to Hamburg for the season with the Bavarians evidently keen to keep hold of the winger, however, that situation may now be subject to change.
The Florida-born star has played a total of just 113 minutes all season for the Hamburg first team with several reports claiming earlier this week that the Bayern youngster had been demoted to HSV's reserve side.
HSV II currently play in the German fourth tier with the switch representing a major downshift for the US youngster.
This development does not appear to have been one taken lightly by Green either with ESPN and several other sources claiming that the 19-year-old is now refusing to play for HSV II.
The Hamburger Morgen Post has subsequently reported that representatives from Bayern Munich have met with officials at Hamburg to discuss Green's future at the club and whether he should be recalled from his loan spell with Die Rothosen.
Green previously played 23 times for Bayern Munich II, scoring 15 goals and had been tipped for big things.
Should he be recalled then an uncertain future at the Allianz Arena awaits, with a loan move to the Premier League one possibility from the start of next season.
