Yeboah, 22, has struck nine goals in 24 games this season for Borussia Monchengladbach's second team in the country's fourth tier.

And the off-contract striker has revealed that, should a contract extension with the German giant not be agreed, he will be moving on in his ultimate journey to boomerang back to the Bundesliga.

The former Brisbane Roar rookie has put two years marred by injury behind him with a breakthrough campaign.

Yeboah now believes it's time to test himself on a higher plain.

Yeboah confired their had been interest from German second division teams and he is preparing to make a potentially career defining decision on his club future.

 "I'm keeping my options open and concentrating on finishing the season - but after that there will be some big decisions to make," he said.

"Hopefully they will be good ones for the next part of my career.

"I feel that possibly within two to three weeks things will be sorted out. There are certainly some possibilities.

"It's exciting times ... I am sure 100 per cent something will come up."

Yeboah's trajectory could mirror that of fellow Australians Mathew Leckie and Robbie Kruse, who both cut their teeth in Germany's second tier before ascending to the first.

Socceroos goalkeeper Mitch Langerak has taken a similar route of late as he stars with Stuttgart, who are heading back to the top flight after a season in the 2.Bundesliga.

"My dream is to play in the Bundesliga but I might have to take a couple of steps to get there," added Yeboah, who has yet to taste senior football after over three years with 'Gladbach.

"For me now, it's not about making quick decisions ... it's about making smart ones.

"For example, if you're playing second Bundesliga at 22, it's a good thing because it's a really good standard.

"It's about going somewhere else to climb back up to the top level

"There have been talks with them and I'm not totally sure whether I will stay or go."

Whatever happens, the pacy and penetrating Yeboah has proved to himself, as much as anybody else, that he possesses the attributes that could lead to loftier career destinations.

"There's nothing better than coming back after two years of being injured and showing you can still have an effect," he declared.

"It's been a good year ... I've gained a lot of confidence.

"Now I want to transfer what I've been doing for the second team here to another level. It think it's time for me to step up.

"I have learned so much since coming here at the age of 19.

"It hasn't been easy and you can't explain it unless you've done it."

Yeboah doesn't buy into the perception of some that he is a Socceroos talisman in waiting.

"I hear that sort of thing from time to time but I'm not even thinking about that," he said.

"I need to be established at a club, playing at a good level, before even considering any of that."
