Schalke 04 have announced that Amine Harit has joined Olympique Marseille on loan without an option to buy.
"The decision to loan Amine Harit out to Marseille has several dimensions. One aspect is that we will save a lot of money this season through the loan move," said Schalke 04 sporting director Rouven Schröder.
"We also have the development of his market value in mind; in an ideal scenario, he will spend this season as a regular at a European club, and then we can offer him out to the transfer market next summer when it hopefully is also less affected by corona. We would like to wish Amine all the best for the next year in Marseille."
The 24-year-old attacking midfielder has made a total of 119 appearances for Schalke, racking up 13 goals and 23 assists.
