Jan Siewert could return to Borussia Dortmund in order to bring Herbert Bockhorn to Huddersfield Town, according to Riviersport.

Siewert followed in the footsteps of his predecessor David Wagner in January when he took over at the John Smith’s Stadium, having made his name in charge of Dortmund’s B team in the third tier of German football.

 

And it is understood that the highly-rated head coach could look to bring Bockhorn with him to Yorkshire when the summer transfer window opens at the end of the season.

A 24-year-old right-back who can also play further forward on the wing, Bockhorn has been very impressive for Dortmund’s second string this season and has received his first call up for the Uganda national team as a result with the African Cup of Nations on the horizon.

The versatile defender is under contract until 2021 but his agent, Cem Ergun, refused to rule out a summer move with the report claiming that Siewert is keen to work with him again.

Huddersfield are bottom of the Premier League and look certain to be playing Championship football next season.
