Germany Under-21 right-back Klostermann started all but four of promoted Leipzig's 34 Bundesliga 2 assignments last season. Winning only 48 per cent of his attempted challenges, the 20-year-old still has ample room for improvement, although he did impress on a regular basis with his enterprising forays into opposition territory, notching one goal and four assists.

Bundesliga wingers will demand much more of him defensively, but his general performance levels over the course of only his second full season as a professional showed him to be a quick learner with bags of untapped potential.
