Hoffenheim have agreed a deal to sign Schalke 04 midfielder Sebastian Rudy on loan, according to Bild.
The German news outlet reports that the two clubs have come to an agreement, with only minor details left to be sorted out before the switch should be made official.
Rudy, who played for Hoffenheim from 2010 to 2017, has struggled to live up to the expectations at Schalke 04 after joining 'The Royal Blues' in a €16 million deal from Bayern München last season.
The 29-year-old made 28 appearances for Schalke last season.
