Simon Terodde signs for Schalke 04
The squad-planning task force have completed another bit of business for next season, with Simon Terodde becoming the second player after Mainz’s Danny Latza set to join FC Schalke 04 in the summer. The striker, currently playing for Hamburger SV, has agreed a deal with S04 until the end of the 2021/22 campaign with an option for a further year.
“We’re delighted that we have been able to sign Simon Terodde,” said Board Member for Sport and Communication Peter Knäbel. “With his nose for goal and clinical finishing, Simon will be a great addition to our attack. He knows Bundesliga 2 well and, over a number of years, he has demonstrated that he has the right mentality and mindset to be successful in the division. That makes Simon a cornerstone around which we can build our new squad.”
