The 20 year old, who is a student at Berkeley in California, has been offered a professional contract having started pre-season training with Pal Dardai's squad after Hertha contacted his dad at the recent FIFA Under-20 World Cup where Klinsmann played every minute of the Stars and Stripes' run to the quarter-finals.

"It’s a big club, a Europa League participant, essentially a club that you’d like to play for and whose level you’d like to reach. To learn from Rune [Jarstein] and Thomas [Kraft] and to play in the second team to get used to the level of play in the Bundesliga is a fantastic opportunity. It was a chance I had to take with both hands," said Klinsmann, who has previously had trials with West Ham United, Everton and one of his father's former clubs, Stuttgart.
