Werner is yet to link up with his international team-mates in Cologne prior to the friendly versus Turkey and Nations League games against Ukraine and Switzerland on October 10 and 13.

Sorg confirmed Germany’s staff are in contact with Werner and are expecting him within the next few days.

Antonio Rudiger has now arrived at their team hotel in Cologne a day later than the rest of the squad, following a meeting with head coach Low on Monday.
