25 Aug Bentaleb loan to Schalke
Nabil Bentaleb has joined Schalke on a season-long loan from Tottenham, both clubs have confirmed.
The 21-year-old Algeria midfielder passed a medical in Gelsenkirchen on August 18 and the final paperwork for the move to be finalised was received on Thursday.
“We’re pleased that Nabil Bentaleb has decided to join us,” Schalke’s director of sport Christian Heidel said on the Bundesliga club’s website. “We’ve been working on this transfer for the past six weeks.
“He’s an aggressive, tough-tackling midfielder who further increases the options our coach Markus Weinzierl has.”
