Player profile

The striker has an impressive scoring record at youth level, with 25 goals in 29 appearances for Germany at u-16, u-17, u-18 and u-19 level. Yesil was second top-scorer in the 2011 u-17 World Cup after netting six goals in seven matches as Germany finished third in Mexico. The youngster scored 57 goals in 71 matches for Bayer Leverkusen's youth teams in two years and had made one appearance for Sami Hyypia's club before joining Liverpool.

It was very hard to assess Yesil's progress in 2012/13 because although he started in both of the club's League Cup matches during the season, the only other times he made the match-day squad was when he was an unused substitute for the Europa League matches against Young Boys of Bern away and Anzhi Makhachkala at home. Yesil made just four appearances for Liverpool's Under-21 team in 2013/14, scoring once against Aston Villa in early December. Two cruciate ligament ruptures in a year, his first on international duty with Germany Under-21s and his second training with Liverpool, have ensured Yesil became the forgotten man of the youth set-up. Liverpool loaned Yesil to Luzern for the 2015/16 campaign where he played under the guidance of former Red Markus Babbel. Liverpool released Yesil in the summer of 2016 and he remained without a club until January 2017 when he joined Greek side Panionios.
