Herrmann enjoyed an impressive 2023 FIFA U-17 World Cup for eventual champions Germany, scoring once and providing three assists before injury ruled him out of the semi-finals and final.
The winger, who is also eligible to play for Ghana, has scored twice in 16 appearances for Dortmund’s under-19s this season, but has yet to make his senior bow for die Schwarzgelben.
