Bernard Tekpetey to accompany team to training camp
A New Year returnee - Bernard Tekpetey has terminated his loan contract with Austrian first-division side SCR Altach at his own request. The deal would have run out at the end of the current season.
The Ghana international, who is under contract at Schalke 04 until June 30th 2020, moved to Altach on loan in mid August 2017.
In Austria, Tekpetey contested ten games, scoring one goal in 425 minutes of playing time. This was not enough to satisfy the attacker, whose objective was to rack up game time there. He will therefore travel with the rest of the Royal Blues to their winter training camp in Benidorm today. During the week, his footballing future will be assessed.
In February 2016, Tekpetey transferred from the UniStar Soccer Academy in Ghana to the S04 U23s. After 16 games (4 goals) in the Regionalliga, the now 20 year old made the jump to the senior team. Last season, he made two appearances in the Bundesliga and one in the Europa League.
