The new Schalke player Jonjoe Kenny, who came on loan during the summer, is happy to be playing his first minutes with the German Bundesliga club.

English right-back Jonjoe Kenny is a product of Everton’s youth system.

In 2014 he debuted with the senior squad, and has been loaned to Wigan Athletic, Oxford United, and now to Schalke.

And the 22-year-old cannot wait for the new German Bundesliga season to start.

“It’s going to be an unbelievable experience for me this season,” he said to the club’s official website.

“I can hardly wait for it to start.”

“I need to create more chances for my teammates,” he commented.

“That is now a part of my job.”

The youngster added: “I want to do that as much and as well as I can.”

“I am loving the German life. My family is also here and they also like Germany a lot. It’s going really well and I feel at home here.”
