Schalke 04 in talks to loan Chelsea defender Baba Rahman

Schalke 04 sporting director Christian Heidel reveals that the German club are in talks with Chelsea regarding a loan deal for defender Baba Rahman.

Schalke 04 sporting director Christian Heidel has suggested that Chelsea defender Baba Rahman is keen to return to the club on loan in January.

In August 2016, Rahman signed a season-long deal with the Bundesliga side before midway through the campaign, the Ghanaian international sustained a serious knee injury.

However, after a year on the sidelines, Rahman is close to a return to action and Heidel has revealed that the German outfit are keen to secure his services before the end of the month.

On Schalke 04's official Twitter page, Heidel is quoted as saying: "We're in talks with Chelsea regarding Baba Rahman. There are still one or two things to clear up on their end.

"We could agree on a deal with the player himself relatively quickly."

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has previously said that he wants to help Rahman rediscover his best form in any way he can.
