There are more news and rumors about Schalke here.
Mark Uth is very likely to leave Schalke 04 at the end of the season. In Gelsenkirchen, the attacker probably no longer has a future, his salary is difficult to raise for the miners in the 2nd Bundesliga. Uth is now likely to go back to 1. FC Köln.
The striker could be a bargain for Effzeh. That reports the kicker. Accordingly, Uth is available for a transfer fee of less than one million euros. Talks with the Cologne residents are already planned.
However, there is still one ambiguity with the planned transfer: It has not yet been clarified whether the deal would come about if Cologne also had to move into the 2nd division. Cologne currently ranks 17th in the table with 29 points.

Peter Knäbel is also planning to coach Dimitrios Grammozis for the coming season. The sports director confirms that Sky: “We have the firm intention of going into the new season with Dimitrios Grammozis. Definitely,” said Knäbel.
According to kicker S04 wants to stick to this plan even in the event that Schalke loses all of the remaining three games in the Bundesliga. At the weekend, the miners of TSG Hoffenheim lost 4-2 despite a 2-0 half-time lead.
One reason for the trust in Grammozis is said to be the fact that Schalke is planning to start the new season with a completely changed team. The danger that the former Darmstadt coach could already wear out is therefore not likely to exist. In eight games with the Gelsenkircheners, Grammozis had to accept six defeats so far.
Schalke 04 will leave the Bundesliga with a new record. Due to the Bundesliga debuts of Florian Flick, Jimmy Kaparos and Münir Levent Mercan against Hoffenheim, S04 already has 39 players this season.
The Royal Blues are thus breaking VfL Wolfsburg’s previous record from the 2011/2012 season. Back then, Felix Magath used 36 different players in one season. You can find the list here.
