WHAT THEY SAID: Sabitzer said: "This is initially a project until the summer, then we'll see. Until then, I want to give everything here. It's a loan deal with no options. The situation will be assessed in the summer.
"But I can say for myself: I have found my place here. I know the Premier League now and I can say: There is nothing better, more intense and tougher. Every game is a fight, everything goes faster. This is the best league in the world. Once you've played here, you know: It's incomparable here."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Sabitzer arrived as an emergency signing after Christian Eriken's injury as the winter transfer closed. But his strong form has led to speculation that both parties may wish to make the arrangement permanent. It certainly seems that Sabitzer is in no rush to return to Bayern Munich.
