Nelson is the latest of many English youngsters to move to Germany in particular for more playing time, joining the likes of Jadon Sancho and Ademola Lookman in doing so.

Nelson has now got off to a fine start with Hoffenheim, scoring in their match this afternoon with what is his first goal as a professional.

Elsewhere, Arsenal are cruising at Newcastle, with players like Mesut Ozil showing why it was always going to be a challenge for Nelson to get into Unai Emery’s side straight away.

However, if he can carry on like this with Hoffenheim, it’ll be harder to ignore him when he eventually returns to the Emirates Stadium.
