With his loan to HJK Helsinki ending this winter, Nassim Boujellab is back at FC Schalke from January 1st, 2023. Apparently they don’t plan with him there.

In an Instagram post last week, Nassim Boujellab thanked HJK Helsinki for his good time there. At the same time, the 23-year-old announced in his message that he saw himself back at FC Schalke after his loan expired.

“Now I can hardly wait to return to my heart club FC Schalke 04 and to do everything in the blue and white colors to fight for the league together with the boys. Together we can do it,” was the unmistakable message that Boujellab would like to try the S04 again. But he probably did the math without the royal blues.

As the WAZ reports, Boujellab has to bury his hopes of playing for FC Schalke in the second half of the season. The clubs are planning without the midfielder and instead intend to finally give up Boujellab in winter. There will be no new chance under the new head coach Thomas Reis.

In addition to Boujellab, Kerim Calhanoglu is also considered a replacement candidate for the winter. Unlike Boujellab, the left-back should only be loaned out to get match practice.
