Publicly commenting on reported interest from Schalke 04, where David Wagner was recently appointed manager, Huddersfield Town defender Mathias Jørgensen, commonly known as Zanka, is aware he needs to find a new club this summer.
Told by the Terriers it would be best for him if he found ‘another place to play’, the centre-back is hoping the right offer comes along, one that would suit both him and the recently relegated side.
However, Ekstra Bladet in Denmark reveal on Tuesday that links sending the 29-year-old to Gelsenkirchen ‘aren’t hot’, suggesting Wagner might not be too keen on a reunion.
Either that or they just feel Zanka, who cost Huddersfield Town £2.4m back in 2017, might be too expensive.
His ideal scenario, he said, would be one that would allow him to continue to play top flight football, in turn permitting him to keep his spot in the Denmark national team going forward.
The defender featured 24 times this season in the Premier League, but saw his game time considerably reduce after Jan Siewert took over.
