thumbnail Hello,

Turkey coach Guus Hiddink will observe former Germany youth and current Freiburg defender Oemer Toprak on Saturday.

The Turkish Football Federation (TFF) announced via press release today that Turkey coach Guus Hiddink and assistant Oguz Cetin will be in attendance during Saturday's Bundesliga match between Hannover and Freiburg. The pair will be on hand to observe Freiburg centre-half Oemer Toprak.

Toprak, 21, was born in Ravensburg, Germany, and played in the German U-19 team that won the 2008 European Champonship. However, being of Turkish descent, the Freiburg man has been the target of recruitment efforts by Turkey scout Erdal Keser, who recently convinced Nuernberg starlet Mehmet Ekici to switch allegiance from Germany to Turkey. Should he impress Hiddink, Toprak may soon earn a call-up to the Turkish senior side.
