The 19-year-old Germany Under-21 international, who has made 37 appearances for the Bundesliga club since making his debut in January 2012, claimed the award from the German Football Association (DFB) for the best young player following on from his Under-18 Gold Fritz Walter Medal title in 2012.

Ginter becomes only the second player - after German international Mario Gotze - to receive the highest honour in two different age groups.

FC Koln's Yannick Gerhardt collected the silver award with Dominik Kohr of Bayer Leverkusen getting bronze, while Hoffenheim defender Kevin Akpoguma succeeded Ginter as the U18 winner ahead of Joshua Kimmich and Anthony Syhre.
