Schalke confirm deal for Juventus midfielder Marko Pjaca

Schalke management has confirmed a deal is being closed for Juventus midfielder Marko Pjaca.

The Croatia international needs regular playing time to find his form after six months out with a serious knee ligament injury.

“It's all done for Pjaca now," director of sport Christian Heidel told Sky Sport Deutschland.

“We have Juve's word, we just need his signature on the contract and the medical. It should all be completed tomorrow in Benidorm."

Heidel denied suggestions this deal included a discount for Benedikt Howedes, who is currently at Juventus on loan with option to buy.

“No, his name never came up in the conversation."
