The transfer madness continues ahead of Wednesday's European deadline, and it's already involving potential future U.S. national team call-ups.

German-American defender Daniel Williams is the latest to switch teams after he moved from SC Freiburg to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on a three-year deal, according to reports from Germany.

Williams, 22, has been a member of Freiburg's first team for the last two seasons, during which he's played sparingly. He played in eight games last year and has started one this season prior to the transfer. Born in Germany to an American father and German mother, Williams (pictured above, right) is capable of playing fullback and as a defensive midfielder. 

At Hoffenheim, Williams will team with recent U.S. call-up Fabian Johnson. U.S. Under-20 international Joe Gyau also is under contract at Hoffenheim, where he plays for the club's youth team.

What do you think about the move? Do you see Williams being the next German-American to get a shot with the national team?
