Kerim Calhanoglu has hardly played a role at FC Schalke 04 this season and has only played 60 minutes this season. That's why the left-back is now awarded to the 2nd division.
Schalke announced on Saturday that Calhanoglu would be on loan at SV Sandhausen until the end of the year. His contract in Gelsenkirchen runs until the summer of 2024. "We are convinced that regular playing time in the 2nd Bundesliga will help Kerim to take the next step in development," says Peter Knäbel about this change.
Calhanoglu himself has high goals for his short time with the second division club: "I've made it my goal to stay up with SV Sandhausen. Even if I'm a loan player, I'll give everything for the club on the pitch. I want to play in the 2 "I'm learning a lot in the league and developing into a seasoned professional. I would like to thank you for the very good discussions with those responsible at SV Sandhausen. Now I'm looking forward to getting started."
