Schalke agree deal for Nabil Bentaleb

Bundesliga giants Schalke have reached an agreement with Tottenham Hotspur to sign Algerian midfielder Nabil Bentaleb, according to L’Equipe.

The talented footballer arrives to Veltins Arena on a season-long loan, while a €20 million option to buy could be automatically triggered at a later date.

Schalke were also looking at Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Benjamin Stambouli, but they ultimately opted for the Algeria international.

Nabil Bentaleb has shown a great deal of potential since coming through the youth ranks at Tottenham Hotspur, and he was even a first team regular during the 2014/2015 season.

However, a succession of injuries saw him make mere 5 Premier League outings last term, and despite signing a new deal in July 2015, his long-term future at the club is in doubt.

Bentaleb now gets the opportunity to prove his worth in German Bundesliga, where he will attempt to help Schalke secure a top 4 finish.
