Nabil Bentaleb is understood to be on the verge of joining Newcastle United on loan from Schalke 04.

According to English reports, Bentaleb has arrived on Tyneside to discuss the final details with Newcastle.

If all goes according to plan, the central midfielder should join the English Premier League side on loan with an option to buy of around €10 million, as per a report from Fussballtransfers.

The 25-year-old, who is under contract with Schalke until 2021, hasn't made a single appearance for the club this season after falling out of favor at Veltins-Arena.
