Klaas-Jan Huntelaar returns to Schalke

Football News

For a second spell, veteran striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has returned to Schalke to assist the club in their battle against Bundesliga relegation.

The 37-year-old, who scored 126 goals from 2010 to 2017 in 240 games in seven seasons at Schalke, joins Ajax on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

With just seven points from 16 games, Schalke is rock bottom of the Bundesliga. In the relegation play-off spot, Koln is five points ahead while Arminia Bielefeld sits a further two points up in safety.

“To climb up the table, we need to win games and score goals,” Huntelaar told the club’s official website. I want to play my part in keeping up with the club. Schalke is part of the Bundesliga and we must ensure that we remain here.

The former Netherlands international will link up with former teammate Sead Kolasinac, who returned earlier in the January transfer window to the club on loan from Arsenal.

Huntelaar had seven goals this season in 11 Eredivisie games to his name for Ajax but fell down the pecking order following the signing of West Ham’s Sebastien Haller.
