‘When I left the Czech Republic, my dream was to play in Italy and I achieved that,’ he told iSport.cz. ‘Now, I feel very attracted to England, to be honest.
‘Leipzig was absolutely the right choice for my career. I had also talked to Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke here in Germany.
‘In England, there were Everton and Crystal Palace, plus Valencia in Spain.
‘I just felt that Leipzig wanted me more, and I was also attracted to the playing style of coach Julian Nagelsmann. I am sure that I made the right choice.’
The Czech Republic international has scored seven goals in 19 appearances this campaign and has set up three goals for his Leipzig team-mates.
Leipzig have a clause in Schick’s contract which means they can make the deal permanent for £27million if they qualify for the Champions League.
Time will tell whether Schick will extend his loan deal beyond June when it is supposed to expire should the Bundesliga season finish after then.
