The German club noticed Singh's talents at the recent Under-20 World Cup in Poland, with the midfielder playing a crucial role in getting New Zealand through to the round of 16.

The 20-year-old could create history if he is signed, becoming the first player of Indian descent and the first Kiwi to join the club.

According to reports from Germany, Singh is likely to sign for the club's reserve team, who play in the third-tier competition of the German league system.

Singh was born in Auckland and played 22 games for the Phoenix last season, while also scoring five goals.

All Whites legend Wynton Rufer, arguably New Zealand's greatest footballer, played for Bundesliga side Werder Bremen in the 80s and 90s.
