Center-back Marius Lode is officially no longer at Schalke, while defender Malick Thiaw could also be on the move according to WAZ.
Schalke Sporting Director Rouven Schröder stated that, "Both sides were not satisfied with the situation, so we sat down and decided to dissolve the contract. For us, it is a very good economic step, but Marius is free and can face a new sporting challenge."
Thiaw is a 21-year-old Schalke academy product that featured 31 times in the 2. Bundesliga last year. While nothing is confirmed, Schalke are already in the market for at least one new central defender.
Midfielder Amine Harit could also leave the recently promoted side this summer.
