There has been a personnel change at FC Schalke 04 for the upcoming season: Kyriakos Papadopoulos will play for Bayer 04 Leverkusen until the end of the 2014/15 campaign. The Royal Blues and the Rhineland club have reached a loan agreement for the 22-year-old centre back.

“It was Kyriakos’ wish to be able to get an increased amount of playing time following his long injury break. That’s why we have agreed to loan him out and we hope that his expectations will be fulfilled,” explained Schalke’s sporting director Horst Heldt. Papadopoulos’ contract at FC Schalke 04 runs until 30th June 2016.
