Burgstaller has become surplus to requirements following the arrivals of Goncalo Paciencia (Frankfurt, loan) and Vedad Ibisevic (Hertha BSC, free transfer).
The 31-year-old has reportedly been told that he's no longer in the plans of Schalke coach David Wagner and that he's free to find a new club before the transfer window closes.
Instead of being with the first-team squad in Munich, Burgstaller will apparently join up with the U23's for their game against Rödinghausen tomorrow.
The Austrian forward failed to score in 21 Bundesliga games last season.
