Omar Mascarell's contract with Schalke 04 has been terminated by mutual consent, the 2. Bundesliga side have announced today.
"Ultimately, for Omar, similarly to Matija Nastasic and other players who have contracts with a certain financial package, he does not have a future in the 2. Bundesliga," said Schalke sporting director Rouven Schröder.
"Despite this difficult situation, Omar has acted very professionally over the past few weeks and supported the team to the best of his ability. We wish Omar all the best for his future, both on and off the pitch."
The 28-year-old central midfielder had one year left on his contract with Schalke. He has now signed for Elche in Spain.
