"Haji is on a very good path. What he now needs most of all, is game time," said sporting director Christian Heidel. "In Sandhausen he has the opportunity to get match practice. He will return to Schalke next summer and will continue his development with us." The American's contract with the Royal Blues lasts until 30th June 2020.
Wright joined Schalke's academy from New York Cosmos in early 2016. Last season, the youngster reached the final round of the German Championship with the U19s and also won the Westfalenpokal.
