Schalke 04 have announced the departure of 21-year-old central defender Ozan Kabak on a season-long loan to Premier League side Norwich City.
S04 confirm that Norwich have an option to buy Kabak which becomes an obligation if certain circumstances are met which as per Sport1, is a reported €13m on top of the €4m loan fee.
“We are very pleased to have found a mutually beneficial solution in the final days of the transfer window,” said S04 sporting director Rouven Schröder. “Given the circumstances, this loan transfer with the possibility of a permanent move is financially a good deal for us. It also gives Ozan the chance to prove himself in England again and show his full potential.”
Since joining Schalke in 2019, Kabak has played 40 games in the Bundesliga before joining Liverpool on a six-month loan deal last January.
