Julian Draxler 'not ready' for move abroad

German international Julian Draxler believes that he was 'not ready' to join a top foreign club.

Wolfsburg attacking midfielder Julian Draxler has admitted that he was 'not ready' for a move abroad this summer.

The 21-year-old joined the DFB-Pokal winners from Schalke 04 on deadline day despite interest from Champions League finalists Juventus, and Draxler has revealed that he was not yet willing to leave his native country.

The Germany international told Bild: "From the outside, maybe my move isn't understandable. Schalke are a great club in Germany.

"Many people thought that if I left it would be for a top foreign club, but I decided not to go abroad as I didn't feel ready for that kind of move."

Draxler could make his Bundesliga debut for Wolfsburg this weekend as they trael to Bavaria to take on FC Ingolstadt 04.
