Schalke rules out Farfan exit

The 26-year-old has less than 12 months left on his contract, but Schalke are keen for the striker to sign an extension.

Heldt told Reviersport newspaper: “Jefferson Farfan will definitely not be leaving us within this current transfer window. That is for sure.

“In contrast, we are still working very hard to ensure we are able to sign new terms with Jefferson to keep him at our club for much longer.”
