Nabil Bentaleb to join Schalke 04

Algerian international Nabil Bentaleb will join Bundesliga side Schalke 04 on loan with an option to buy, according to L’Équipe.

The 21 year old should join Schalke rapidly, despite the German side having had two initial transfer offers for Bentaleb rejected by Tottenham Hotspur.

The final deal is a loan with a €20m option to buy which could turn obligatory should certain criteria be met.

Bentaleb agreed to the move early yesterday evening.
