Horst Heldt is hoping to tie down Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to a new deal with Schalke.

Schalke 04 general manager Horst Heldt has said that he is keen to tie star striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar down to a longer contract with the club.

Huntelaar's current deal expires next summer, which has led Heldt to comment that he wants Huntelaar to show his commitment to the club by signing a new deal.

"Huntelaar is to set the agenda," Sky Sports News quotes Heldt as saying. "We want to sign a new deal with him and I feel it would be just reasonable for both parties to sign a new contract.

"However we need him 100% committed. I am unable to force him into signing a new contract at our club.

"We are a Champions League club this season, we were third last season and we are keen to play a big part in this season as well. We are not going to sell our best players."

Huntelaar signed for Schalke in 2010.
