Schalke 04 want to extend Alexander Nübel's contract beyond 2020, but the talented keeper is stalling on a new deal as he's considering his future.

Apparently, the 22-year-old was actually eager to sign a new contract for a long while, but the club didn't take advantage of the situation.

"He was prepared to extend his contract with Schalke for a long time. The club didn't do it last season - for whatever reason. I'm not trying to accuse anyone of anything. That's just reality," Schalke 04 head of sport Jochen Schneider told Bild.

Nübel was recently appointed new Schalke captain ahead of the 2019/20 season.
