Schalke have pulled back from talks with Chelsea over Abdul Rahman Baba.
The Ghana fullback is recovering from a knee injury suffered last season while on-loan with S04. He broke down on international duty in January.
Baba is still in recovery and Schalke management have decided to step back from re-signing the defender this month.
His agent, Sascha Empacher, has confirmed to Fussball Transfers that talks with Schalke have been postponed until January.
Schalke remain keen on re-signing Baba, but will wait until the winter transfer window before bringing him back to Germany.
