Arsenal full back Sead Kolasinac is close to finalising a loan move back to Schalke in Germany.

The 27-year old arrived in Düsseldorf on Wednesday evening ahead of his medical on Thursday.

Kolasinac saw a move to Bayer Leverkusen fall through earlier this year but is hopeful of completing a return to the Bundesliga with Schalke, the side he left in 2017 ahead of joining Arsenal. 

Schalke were among the teams to have enquired for Manchester United's Brandon Williams who also has interest from Leverkusen and Southampton.
