Schalke have confirmed that defender Coke will join La Liga side Levante on loan until the end of the season, Kicker confirms.
The 30-year-old signed from Sevilla in the summer of 2016 but has failed to really establish himself in Germany.
Coke suffered a major cruciate ligament injury on his debut.
After recovering, Coke started seven league matches at the end of last season but he has been restricted to a single minute of league action this campaign.
“The loan deal – designed to give the Schalke man some game time at the side currently 15th in La Liga – will start on January 1 2018 and will last until June 30 2018,” read a Schalke statement.
“The 30-year-old’s contract at Schalke does not expire until June 30 2019.”
With Daniel Caligiuri, Benjamin Stambouli and Thilo Kehrer for competition, the right-sided defender, whose contract will the Royal Blues runs until summer 2019, will now be hoping to make up for lost time in La Liga.
