Experienced defender Hans Sarpei looks set to leave Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen. The Ghanaian international has apparently reached an agreement with Champions League hopefuls Schalke.
“I can confirm that the transfer of Hans Sarpei to Schalke is all done,” Leverkusen general director Wolfgang Holzhauser was quoted as saying by Bild.
Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen have confirmed the transfer on their official websi.
Schalke coach Felix Magath is eager to add some more depth to his back-line in order to be ready to play in three different competitions (Bundesliga, Champions League, DFB Pokal) and he apparently sees Sarpei as the right man for the Gelsenkirchen side.
