Shakhtar Donetsk have announced the signing of Yevhen Konoplyanka on a permanent deal from Schalke 04.

The 29-year-old has put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the Ukrainian champions.

"We are delighted that we were able to meet Yevhen Konoplyanka's short-term wish to be able to return to his home country. We would like to thank him for his performances for Schalke 04 and wish him all the best for the future - both sportingly and in his private life," Schalke head of sport Jochen Schneider said.

Konoplyanka joined Schalke 04 from Sevilla in 2017 and made 78 appearances for 'The Royal Blues' with 13 goals and nine assists to his name.
