Reports: Premier League club chasing signature of Ugandan defender 

By Football256 Team

English Premier League side Huddersfield might be destined for the championship next season but their coach Jan Siewert is chasing the signature of Ugandan based defender Herbert Bockhorn according to reports. 

Bockhorn plies his trade with Borussia Dortmund II side in the  Regionalliga which is the fourth tier of the Germany football system.

Bockhorn came to the limelight after he was included in the 46 provisional man squad for the Cranes last AFCON qualifier against Tanzania on March 24th in Dar Es Salaam. 

The 24-year-old is now linked with a move to England where he could team up with his former boss Siewert.


The Ugandan-born right-back has made 18 appearances in the Regionalliga West for Dortmund’s second team, scoring two goals and registering two assists.

According to Reviersport, Stewart is interested in bringing Bockhorn to Huddersfield despite the defender being contracted to the Die Borussen until 2021.

Born to a German father and a Ugandan mother at Nsambya hospital, Bockhorn joined Dortmund from SC Weidenbrück in 2016 but is yet to make a competitive appearance for the first team. 

His youth career saw him progress from amateur side TSV Meldorf before growing through the youth ranks at Werder Bremen.
