Young English phenom Jamie Bynoe-Gittens is till suffering from problems related to the shoulder dislocation that sidelined him earlier in the season. Sven Westerschulze of Sky’s German outfit reports that the 18-year-old has been fighting through persistent pain since returning to the squad and hasn’t really been fit.

After a timid and lackluster performance against FC Schalke 04 in last week’s Revierderby, the teenager’s starting prospects in this week’s fixture against Köln weren’t great to begin with. Returning squad captain Marco Reus could take Bynoe-Gitten’s spot on the left in Edin Terzic’s modified 4-1-4-1.

So too could Giovanni Reyna, Donyell Malen, and new German national team call-up Marius Wolf.
