The Germany Under-20 international was reportedly trying to extort money from his relatives before he got caught by the authorities in Pattaya

Talented winger Savio Nsereko has been arrested by police in Thailand for claiming to his family that he was abducted, before then demanding a sum of €3,000.

The 23-year-old had spent €25,000 on his trip before he allegedly thought about taking the  unusual measures to refill his holiday bank account, a report by the Bangkok Post states.

Having signed with West Ham from Brescia for a sum of €11 million in 2009, the Uganda-born attacker has since enjoyed spells at Fiorentina, Bologna and 1860 Munich before ending up at German third division side SpVgg Unterhaching.
