Schalke have confirmed Nabil Bentaleb has agreed to join the Bundesliga club a season-long loan from Tottenham.
Bentaleb broke into the Tottenham first team in 2013 but he has fallen down the pecking order following ankle and knee injuries, with the midfielder managing just five Premier League appearances last season.
Having undergone a medical at Schalke last week, Bentaleb has agreed to spend the 2016-17 season in Germany.
"We expect him [Bentaleb] to participate in training this afternoon," Schalke's director of sport Christian Heidel told a media conference on Thursday.
"Bentaleb is 100 per cent fit, but we need to be patient and give him a little time to integrate into the team."
