England scouts urged to check Augsburg whizkid Kevin Danso

England scouts are being urged to check on Augsburg whizkid Kevin Danso.

The 18 year-old midfielder made his Bundesliga debut for the 1-1 draw with RB Leipzig last weekend.

An Austria youth international, Danso learned his football in England - in the same system as Tottenham star Dele Alli.

He told BILD: "I was born in Austria, but grew up in England.

"When I was six years old my parents moved to Milton Keynes. It's about an hour from London.

"I started playing football in England. I played at the MK Dons from the U9 onwards.

"At the age of 16 I went to Augsburg alone and went to the football school. It was the right decision that I went to Augsburg . Here I was promoted. "
