Nabil Bentaleb won't be returning to Schalke.
The midfielder spent part of last season on-loan with Newcastle United.
Bentaleb could've returned to Schalke for preseason, but instead is now seeking a permanent move away.
A return to Newcastle has been mooted, though he also has offers from China, Saudi Arabia and Russia.
Newcastle can buy Bentaleb outright for €10m.
