“He is a young man who is all over the place with lots of teams interested in him because of what he has done.
“He is growing very fast. He just got a chance from the second team and now he is with the first team. He’s been a player I believe is a hope for the future.
“Leweling is one of the guys that we can have because he’s young, 19 years of age and he has had the chance to play for the German national team and so we are looking at how we can also get him on board to also help us in the future. He’s somebody I believe if not today, he’s going to be the hope for our future and that’s why he’s here” Akonnor added.
