Schalke to extend Bernard Tekpetey's contract

German side Schalke will extend the contract of Ghana international Bernard Tepketey before sending him out on loan this season.

Since then, however, there are only three Bundesliga stars and a performance in the Europa League in the Vita of the national team of the Black Stars. While one is convinced of Tekpetey's potential, it is not (yet) enough to play a role. Also not under Domenico Tedesco. Therefore, the goalkeeper is to be lent for another year.

A hurdle: Tekpetey's contract on Schalke is coming out this summer. Before a loan can be finalized, it must first be extended accordingly. As adviser Jerry O. Brempong confirms against FT , the " prompt " will happen.

It was planned to extend the space by another two years - by 2020. A clear signal that S04 is planning for the future with the young striker. Subsequently, Tekpetey is most likely to be awarded to SC Rheindorf Altach in Austria.

Still, all parties must agree, also in terms of salary. This should be corrected in the course of the extension upwards. The fact that the deal could fail due to the salary as reported by the ' Vorarlberger Nachrichten ' is wrong, explains Tekpetey's advisor to our editorial team.

Whether the SCR Altach against Maccabi Tel Aviv and qualify for the Europa League does not have any influence on the lending business. This week, the deal could go on stage.
