Undav previously stated his desire to stay at Stuttgart but he is contracted to the Seagulls until 2026.

The former Union man was asked about his future during a press conference ahead of Germany's final group game against Switzerland on Sunday.

“I have had contact with Fabian," Undav confirmed. “We have already had a phone call and he talked about it. I explained my vision to him and he told me what he thought about me. Of course I talk with my adviser here and there. It is clear that things don’t stay calm in the market but go up and down.

“I don’t want to hear too much from outside but I want to concentrate on the European Championships.”

Undav has enjoyed his time in Stuttgart and is popular with the fans at the MHPArena.

Undav added: “It's an amazing feeling when the fans sing your name. I've tried my best all year to get them to sing my name. That's why I feel so comfortable in Stuttgart. I like the club, I like the fans, I like the people around me."
