Jendrisek to join Schalke
The 23-year-old will join the club on a three-year deal when his current deal expires in the summer. A statement on Schalke's official website read: "An international for World Cup participants Slovakia will soon play for Schalke. Erik Jendrisek, whose contract with Kaiserslautern runs out at the end of the season, is joining the Royal Blues."
Jendrisek's signing could pave the way for Kevin Kuranyi to leave Gelsenkirchen. Kuranyi, who has been in excellent form this season, has been heavily linked in the German press with a move to Dynamo Moscow. Jendrisek has scored 14 times in 29 games for Kaiserslautern so far this term to help the club secure promotion back to the top flight.
Earlier this week, Schalke also confirmed Real Madrid defender Christoph Metzelder would be joining the club in the summer.
