Schalke secure Hoffenheim striker Uth

Mark Uth will join Schalke from Hoffenheim on a free transfer for the 2018-19 season, the Bundesliga clubs have announced.

Uth is out of contract at Hoffenheim at the end of the current campaign and has agreed a four-year deal at the Veltins Arena, running until June 2022.

The 26-year-old striker has scored 24 Bundesliga goals for Hoffenheim since joining form Dutch side Heerenveen in 2015, with an impressive haul of nine in 16 top-flight matches this season.
