Schalke winger Lewis Holtby admits his ultimate goal is to play in England.

The Germany international is the son of English parents and a self-confessed Everton fan. He was linked with Liverpool and Arsenal over the summer.

"I am a German Englishman and have been following the Premier League forever. For me it is a dream to play there," said Holtby, who also insisted he was in no rush to quit Schalke.
