Leverkusen to sign Kyriakos Papadopoulos

Bayer Leverkusen are set to recruit Greek defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos from Schalke, Bild can reveal.

The Greece international spent the previous season on loan at Bay Arena, and despite initially struggling for playing time, he did eventually prove his worth.

As a result, Bayer have entered talks with Schalke in an attempt to purchase his contract and Bild claims that a €5.5 million transfer fee is all but agreed.

With the player having missed large chunks of the 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 seasons through a succession of injuries, the Miners are ready to offload the 23 year old footballer.

Papadopoulos, who had joined Schalke from Olympiakos, finally got his chance at Bay Arena after Emir Spahic was sacked, and he went on to score 2 goals in 14 Bundesliga appearances.

The youngster is currently sidelined with a shoulder injury, but he should be ready for the start of the new campaign.
