"Permanently leaving FC Schalke 04 was definitely not an easy decision for Ahmed," said Schalke sporting director Rouven Schröder.
"Aside from the emotional side of this transfer, it's an understandable step for him to take and one that makes sense for him in a sporting sense. We would like to wish Ahmed all the best for his future."
Kutucu made a total of 52 appearances for Schalke's senior side, racking up six goals and four assists.
