Klaas Jan Huntelaar has decided to come back to Schalke 04, according to Bild.

Earlier this week, the Ajax veteran confirmed that he was weighing up an offer from his former club, telling ESPN:

"They have reported. I've talked about it with Ajax, but it's a difficult choice for me. I have played for a long time at Ajax, six and a half years now. And I played at Schalke for seven years. So they are the two clubs that I like the most."

Now, the 37-year-old has reportedly made up his mind, and his decision is expected to be officially announced soon.

Huntelaar, who scored 126 goals in 240 games for Schalke from 2010 to 2017, has announced that he will be hanging up his boots at the end of the season.
