When asked if any winter signings could be on the cards, Tedesco told Bild:
"We still have some games left, and we must give everything we can. Then, in the break, we will draw a conclusion and identify the adjusting screws."
One of the summer investments that Schalke made is Sebastian Rudy who joined the club from Bayern München for €16 million.
Rudy has struggled with his form since joining 'The Royal Blues', but Tedesco knew that it would take the midfielder some time to adjust after not playing much for Bayern.
"We knew that he didn't play much, considering his qualities. He has completed all the tests and checks here. Otherwise, we wouldn't have been possible to sign him. When a Bayern player plays every game, he probably costs €40 million and is unobtainable," Tedesco said.
