Official: Schalke finish Frey signing

Schalke 04 have signed Michael Frey on loan from Royal Antwerp.
FC Schalke 04 have sealed the signing of 28-year-old Royal Antwerp striker Michael Frey on a six-month loan with an option to buy.

"We are delighted that we have been able to complete the signing ahead of the match against Frankfurt. We had to strengthen our attacking options following Sebastian Polter's injury and in signing Michael we have done just that," commented Schalke 04 chief Peter Knäbel.

"We have acquired a big, physical and dynamic centre forward who will fill the hole in the attacking line," he added.

28-year-old Frey, who has found the net nine times in 23 games this season, said:

"I am pleased to be here at Schalke and to be able to get on the training pitch with the team today. I will do everything to integrate with the team as quickly as possible, so that together we can pick up points."
