Ünlü, who is just 17, has already impressed for the under-19 team and says it is “a dream come true” to be part of the professional squad going forward.

“Umut absolutely deserves this opportunity,” says head coach Michael Schiele of the full-back. “He has a good attitude paired with aggressive duel behaviour and clean passing.”
