RB Leipzig's Kevin Kampl has admitted he's considering leaving the Bundesliga to test himself out in a different league.

The midfielder, whose contract with 'Die Roten Bullen' runs until 2021, is tempted by a move to Spain in particular.

"I'll soon be 29 and still have a big career step ahead of me. At the moment I feel extremely comfortable here, everyone knows that. But I have never played abroad, except in Salzburg. That's something I think about now and then," Kampl said in an interview with rblive.de and went on:

"On the other hand, I have two small children. You don't just pack your suitcases and say: 'I'll do something new'. Basically, I have to feel extremely comfortable in the place where I'm living. And that's definitely the case in Leipzig. When the time is right, the club and I will talk openly about it.

"Spain is very interesting. The football there would suit me well. I like having the ball a lot. I also find Italy and England attractive. But my first choice would be the Primera Division," Kampl said.

Kampl was born in Germany but played for Slovenia until he announced his international retirement in November 2018. He joined RB Leipzig from Bayer Leverkusen in 2017.
