Twenty-nine-year-old Coke joined Sevilla in 2011 and captained the side in the 2015/16 season. He is also a three-time UEFA Europa League winner, scoring twice in Sevilla’s 3-1 victory over English Premier League side Liverpool FC in the 2016 final back in May.
* #S04 confirms the agreement with #Coke and @SevillaFC. He has passed his medical tests today.
Coke will return to Spain on Monday to settle final formalities before joining the S04 squad at their training camp in Mittersill, Austria.
Coke’s arrival will take Schalke’s number of big-name summer signings to three, following Switzerland international Breel Embolo‘s move from FC Basel 1893 and Naldo‘s free transfer from VfL Wolfsburg.
