FC Köln have the option to sign Schalke 04 loanee Mark Uth on a permanent deal for around €10 million, according to a report from Sport Bild.
Uth has made a strong start to life at Köln, racking up a goal and two assists in his first three games for the club, and the 28-year-old could certainly imagine staying at RheinEnergieStadion beyond the summer.
"We can continue like this. I get to play as a number 10 and have the trust of the coach. That makes it possible for me to play good football," he told Sport Bild.
The former Hoffenheim striker was limited to just four league starts for Schalke in the first half of the season.
