Schalke 04 have completed the signing of former Hertha BSC striker Vedad Ibisevic on a one-year deal.

"Vedad will truly enrich our squad. He's an experienced attacking player, dangerous in front of goal and still passionate about every Bundesliga game," said Schalke head of sport Jochen Schneider.

"Vedad won us over with his attitude in our talks. He simply wants to continue playing football at the highest level, and his qualities are undisputed. We are looking forward to working together," he added.

Ibisevic commented:

"Schalke are a really cool club, so I didn't have to think twice about this. I'm highly motivated and want to be successful with the team. I want to do my part with my experience and quality."

The Bosnian veteran made a total of 159 appearances for Hertha with 56 goals and 22 assists to his name.
