Gladbach will Kersken mit Profivertrag ausstatten – Arsenal & Aston Villa mit Interesse

Arsenal and Aston Villa want Kersken - Gladbach goalkeeper to play for England?

Borussia Mönchengladbach will seinen Nachwuchstorhüter Jonas Thomas Kersken nach Transfermarkt-Informationen mit einem Profivertrag bis 2023 ausstatten. Ein entsprechendes Arbeitspapier liegt dem Keeper vor, eine Unterschrift steht allerdings noch aus. Der 19-jährige Kersken kam für die Zweitvertretung der „Fohlen“ fünfmal in der Regionalliga West zum Einsatz, zweimal blieb er ohne Gegentreffer.

According to information acquired by Transfermarkt, Borussia Mönchengladbach want to provide talented goalkeeper Jonas Thomas Kersken with a professional contract until 2023. The shot-stopper has received the corresponding documents, but a signature is still pending. 19-year-old Kersken featured five times in the Regionalliga West for the second team of the Foals and kept two clean sheets.

Neben der Aussicht auf einen Platz im Profikader in Mönchengladbach tun sich für den Youngster womöglich auch Optionen beim FC Arsenal und Aston Villa auf – die beiden Premier-League-Klubs beschäftigen sich mit Kersken. Der Rechtsfuß besitzt durch seine englische Mutter auch einen britischen Pass und ist jüngst in den Fokus der englischen Junioren-Nationalmannschaft gerückt.

 

In addition to the prospect of a place in the first team squad at Mönchengladbach, the youngster may also have options to join Arsenal and Aston Villa – the two Premier League clubs are following Kersken’s development. The right-footed player also has a British passport through his English mother and has recently come into the focus of England’s youth national teams.

„Man müsste natürlich schon im Familien-Stammbuch nachschauen, ob die Vorfahren aus Wales oder Schottland kommen. Meine Mutter ist Engländerin. Aber mit diesem Thema beschäftigt sich mein Berater. Ich konzentriere mich nur darauf hart zu trainieren und voranzukommen“, sagte Kersken im November 2019 bei „RevierSport“.

“One would have to look into the family register, of course, to see whether the ancestors came from Wales or Scotland. My mother is English. But my advisor is dealing with this topic. I just concentrate on training hard and getting forward,” Kersken told RevierSport in November 2019.

Ah, just like old times.  Don't know him, don't particularly follow the BMG youth team closely but he did get to train with the senior setup last November, which means he's had the benefit of some Uwe Kamps tutelage; the man largely response for Marc-André ter Stegen and, more impressively, once managed to get a decent tune out of Logan "more flaps than Pornhub" Bailly.

I'm interested why he thinks this would make a difference—unless he's from the future 🤯

To those asking why his ancestry is relevant, the journalist probably asked him if he was eligible to play for Scotland and Wales or just England and that’s his answer. Nothing to do with what club he ends up at.
