Schalke has been trying to sign goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow for a while. Now the Bundesliga climber will get his dream keeper. The new number one comes on loan from Hertha for a year.

Schalke’s number one comes from Berlin: Schalke is loaning goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow from Hertha BSC, as “Bild” reports. The keeper should stay a year and become number one with the promoted team.

Short, compact, clear

Schwolow lost his regular place: Hertha is to receive a loan fee of 300,000 euros for the deal for the goalkeeper, who lost his regular place to Marcel Lotka last season.
