‘I’m no longer part of Schalke 04 family’, Kabak bids farewell after joining Liverpool


New Liverpool signing, Ozan Kabak has bid farewell to his parent club and their fans, Schalke 04, after completing a move to Liverpool.

The Premier League champions signed Kabak on a loan fee reported to be around £2.5 million with an option to buy in the summer.

Kabak, alongside fellow new signee, Den Davies from Preston, will be a coverup for depleted defence as Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip are likely to be ruled out of the season. Joe Gomez and Fabinho have also sustained injuries.

“As of today, I am no longer part of the wonderful Schalke 04 family, a place I had the privilege to call ‘home’ for one and a half years,” Kabak said in a statement on Twitter.

“I have no doubt that Schalke 04 will soon reach the level of success this club deserves.”

The 20-year-old completed the deal in Germany and will travel to Merseyside later this week to meet his new teammates.

Schalke have signed Shkodran Mustafi on a six-month contract as a replacement for Kabak. Mustafi’s contract was terminated by Arsenal earlier on Monday.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have loaned out Japanese midfielder, Takumi Minamino, to Southampton until the end of the season.
