The 27-year-old forward, whose parents are Kosovar-Albanian, was born in the former Yugoslav city of Gjilan which is now part of Kosovo, a state Serbia still refuses to recognise despite its declaration of independence in 2008.
The midfielder caused controversy over the summer in the World Cup, after he celebrated scoring a goal with a double-headed eagle gesture, resembling that of the Albanian flag.

Why is the Shaqiri situation politically charged?
Shaqiri started Liverpool's 4-0 home win over Red Star on October 24.
"We came here as a football team, representing one of the biggest clubs in the world. We have no political message, absolutely not", Mr Klopp said. "Although we have no idea what would happen, we want to go there and be focused 100 percent on football and not have to think about anything else, that's all".
Jurgen Klopp's side now sit top of Group C and go into the Belgrade clash as heavy favourites having comfortably dispatched Red Star at Anfield recently.
