Bayern Munich prospect Timothy Tillman will switch to the United States after playing for Germany youth teams,U.S. under-20 coach Tab Ramos has told Goal.

Tillman, 19, last played for Germany's under-19 team in European Championship qualifiers in October, but rather than rejoin them in March, he will join up with the U.S. under-20s instead.

"He told me he's ready to go and ready to join us and I am excited to have him in the group because we have not had him in before,"Ramos told Goal.

Born in Germany to a U.S. serviceman, Tillman will need to file a one-time switch with FIFA in order to play for the U.S. ahead of the 2019 Under-20 World Cup.

Tillman plays for Bayern's reserves but has appeared with the first team in a smattering of preseason friendlies including the Audi Cup.

After playing from Germany's youth international teams since the under-15 level, he moved to Bayern from SpVgg Greuther Furth for 500,000 in 2015.
