German title contenders Schalke 04 made their third signing of the winter break on Tuesday recruiting German defender Tim Hoogland on a four year contract from Mainz.

The 24-year-old’s transfer fee was not disclosed as he returns to the club for whom he played up to the summer of 2007.

“I had other proposals from other clubs which did nothing for me, as I still believed that Mainz was the best club for me,” said Hoogland.

“But Schalke 04 is where my heart belongs, I simply could not refuse an opportunity such as this.”

Hoogland joins German midfielder Alexander Baumjohann – who signed from Bayern Munich having played just three times for the German giants since joining six months ago – and Brazilian striker Edu from Korean side Suwon Blue Wings.

Schalke are second in the table, one point behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen, with the campaign set to resume in late January.
