You all know the main man, Jadon Sancho, but there are others impressing in Germany.

Here's SunSport's guide to the British Bunderkids...

JADON SANCHO
(Borussia Dortmund, age 20)

England international winger, heavily in demand after 14 goals and 15 assists in the Bundesliga this season.

JONJOE KENNY
(Schalke, age 23)

Right-back on loan from Everton, won the Bundesliga Rookie of the Month award in August. Schalke want him to extend his stay. He faces Sancho this weekend.

RABBI MATONDO
(Schalke, age 19)

Like Sancho, signed from Manchester City. The £11million Wales forward is finding his feet but has made 12 appearances so far, scoring one goal.

ETHAN AMPADU
(RB Leipzig, age 19)

Frustrating season for the on-loan Chelsea defender. Leipzig have been so good at the back, he’s made more starts for Wales (4) than his club (2).

He starred against Spurs in the Champions League.

REECE OXFORD
(Augsburg, age 21)

Former West Ham whizkid signed a four-year deal after a successful loan but has made just eight outings and was linked with a move in January.

ADEMOLA LOOKMAN
(RB Leipzig, age 22)

Turned an impressive loan into a permanent deal from  Everton last summer but, like Ampadu, Lookman had to settle for a substitute’s role.

ANTONY EVANS
(Paderborn, age 21)

Winger was Everton’s U-23 captain and spent time at Blackpool and Morecambe. Quit Goodison for struggling Paderborn in January but is yet to play.

KEANAN BENNETTS
(Monchengladbach, age 21)

Winger has a German mother and left Spurs  to join Monchengladbach. Has impressed for their U-23s but not played for the senior team.
