Schalke have activated a buy-back clause to secure a reunion with striker Bernard Tekpetey just a season after he left for Paderborn. The 21-year-old joined Schalke in 2016 from UniStar Soccer Academy and he went on to make two senior appearances before leaving for Paderborn in the summer of 2018.

Tekpetey’s 10 goals and six assists helped Paderborn to finish second in 2018-19, earning them a place in the Bundesliga next term. Schalke kept tabs on the Ghanaian during his time in the second tier and have now activated a buy-back clause. “The Ghanaian will rejoin the Royal Blues on 1st July 2019 and the club hierarchy are currently discussing his sporting future at the club,” Schalke said in a statement.Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
