Schalke midfielder Lewis Holtby has revealed that he will leave the German club at the end of the season.

The 22-year-old, whose contract with the Bundesliga outfit runs out next summer, has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs, including Arsenal and Liverpool.

"It will be a decision of the heart," he told German newspaper Der Westen. "I won't play around with the club.

"The opportunities are there. My agent has received offers. I'm waiting to make a decision."

Last month Holtby's agent Markus Noack revealed that he has received "a very interesting proposal" from an English club for his client.
