Sebastian Rudy is hopeful that he will make Germany's squad for the European Championship in 2021.

In an interview with Sport Bild, the 30-year-old reveals that Germany coach Joachim Löw called to check on him during the corona break.

"The national team coach contacted be during the corona break and asked how I was doing. I was very pleased with that," said Rudy, who is on loan at Hoffenheim from Schalke 04 until the end of the season.

"That showed me that I've done a lot of things right and performed well. I've been called up to the national team two times in a row and don't see my international career as a closed chapter - quite on the contrary, actually. I really want to go to the European Championship in 2021."

In the interview, Rudy also reveals that he still doesn't know if his loan deal at Hoffenheim will be made permanent at the end of the season.

The 30-year-old has previously expressed interest in joining Hoffenheim permanently, but with just one game left to play this season, the Schalke loanee's future is still up in the air.

"I don't know what will happen. I'm giving everything I've got here at Hoffenheim. But I can't rule out returning to Schalke," Rudy told Sport Bild.

Rudy has played 34 games for Hoffenheim this season, racking up a goal and four assists.
