Schalke 04 have completed the signing of Bastian Oczipka from Eintracht Frankfurt on a three-year deal. Kicker report the fee to be around €4.5 million.
Head coach Domenico Tedesco told the club’s website: “Bastian is a reliable Left back who knows the Bundesliga well. He has the ability to be stay solid at the back as well as being a danger going forward. We are very excited to have him with us for the new season.”
Oczipka added: “I am excited by this new challenge. Domencio Tedesco and Christian Heidel have really motivated to get involved with the challenges that lie ahead here at Schalke. At the same time I would like to take this chance to thank everyone at Frankfurt for five great years.”
After losing Sead Kolasinac to Arsenal, Oczipka seems like the perfect addition to this Schalke squad with 175 Bundesliga games to his name.
