Nabil Bentaleb has left Schalke 04 to join Newcastle on a loan deal until the end of the season with an option to buy, the two clubs have announced.

According to reports, Newcastle could sign the Algerian midfielder on a permanent deal for €10 million at the end of the season.

Bentaleb hasn't made a single appearance for Schalke this season after falling out of favor due to a disciplinary issue.

In total, the former Tottenham player has played 97 games for Schalke, racking up 19 goals and nine assists.
