Suat Serdar has refused to commit himself to staying at Schalke 04 beyond the end of the season after the club's relegation from the Bundesliga was sealed on Tuesday.

"I really don't know what will happen in the summer," Serdar, who is under contract until 2022, told Sport Bild in the wake of Tuesday's 1-0 defeat to Arminia Bielefeld.

"It's not an issue for me right now. We have a duty to finish the season as decently as possible. It's also a fact that I have a contract at Schalke.

"In the long term, I want to play in the Champions League as permanently as possible and win titles. That has always been a big wish of mine, as well as to play football abroad at some point. Spain and England are two countries that are particularly appealing to me."

The 24-year-old central midfielder has made a total of 82 appearances for Schalke, racking up 11 goals and five assists.
