Everton loanee Jonjoe Kenny says he 'couldn't say no' when Schalke 04 wanted to bring him to Germany.

Jonjoe Kenny has explained why he wanted to join Schalke 04 on loan from Everton during the summer.

"The Bundesliga is a good place to be. Young players get a lot of playing time here and can show themselves on the big stage," the 22-year-old told Bild.

Kenny insists he wasn't scared off by Schalke's poor 2018/19 campaign that saw the club finish 14th.

"Despite everything, Schalke is a huge club. The club has played regularly in Europe and has a large fan base. When the possibility arose, I couldn't say no," he said.

Kenny has played from the start in all of Schalke's game this season and scored his first Bundesliga in last week's 3-0 win over Hertha BSC.
