Schalke 04 have sealed the signing of Dominick Drexler from FC Köln.


The 31-year-old winger has put pen to paper on a two-year contract with the Gelsenkirchen side.

"Dominick is just the player we were looking for to strengthen our attacking midfield," said Schalke sporting director Rouven Schröder.

"He is a very intelligent player both on and off the ball, he's incredibly creative and he is good at dribbling out of tight areas. The fact he has been involved in 55 goals in 97 second-division appearances underlines how valuable he can be for this team."

Drexler commented:

"When Schalke 04 reached out to me, I didn't have to think about it for long. I'm looking forward to getting to know the team as quickly as possible and perhaps already being part of the squad on Friday against HSV."
