Nabil Bentaleb has joined German side Schalke on a season-long loan from Tottenham, the Premier League club has confirmed.
Speaking at a news conference on Tuesday morning, Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel revealed the Algeria international had a medical a week ago – but denied any interest in White Hart Lane forward Heung-Min Son.
Tottenham then confirmed Bentaleb’s loan deal, which has the option of a permanent transfer.
Heidel – who confirmed Bentaleb will train with Schalke on Thursday afternoon – said before the deal was confirmed: “[We] have documents with Tottenham replaced. [We are] waiting for the final return of the forms.
“[Bentaleb] has completed an outstanding medical check here last Thursday then he was back at Tottenham.”
