Leipzig snap up Roma forward
RB Leipzig have snapped up Patrik Schick from AS Roma on a season-long loan deal with a view to a permanent move.
The Bundesliga club swooped to sign the forward before the closure of the transfer window, agreeing to paying the Italian side 3.5million euros to take him for the season.
If Leipzig go on to qualify for the Champions League at the end of the season, then they will have the option to sign him on a permanent basis for a fee of 29million euros.
The 23-year-old Czech Republic international cannot wait to get started with his new club and is looking forward to what the future holds.
“I am very happy to be part of this great, young team and look forward to my new job,” Schick, who has eight goals in 18 appearances for the Czech Republic, told his new club’s official website.
“Of course, I came here to help the team and achieve our goals together. I am glad that everything worked out in the end with RB Leipzig.”
