Our 21 year old loanee, remember him - still only 21, is on fine form at Schalke 04 at present having scored 5 goals in the last 6 matches during the clubs unbeaten 9 match run. Bentaleb has been playing a more advanced midfield role apparently. In addition there is a clause in his deal that Schalke can buy him for €19m allegedly. Wonder what happened between him and Poch after signing his new contract, it all went tits up. Bit of a shame really, might see him back one day, which would be good, but I'm not holding my breath.
