According to French newspaper L’Equipe, Schalke and Tottenham have agreed a loan deal – with an option to buy – for Algerian midfielder Nabil Bentaleb.
The 21-year-old is yet to agree terms with Schalke but the young central midfielder is expected to join the German club after finding himself very much on the fringes at White Hart Lane.Nabil Bentaleb signed a new five year deal at Tottenham in July 2015.
Nabil Bentaleb made 25 Premier League starts for Spurs in the 2014/15 season but managed only two in last season’s title charge under Mauricio Pochettino.He broke into the first team as a teenager under Tim Sherwood and was widely expected to remain a first team regular after producing numerous performances beyond his years.
