Arsenal have confirmed that Sead Kolasinac has completed his six month loan deal to Schalke 04.
The Bosnia and Herzegovina international has returned to his former club until the end of this season, and in all likelihood has played his final game for the Gunners.
He made just 8 appearances for us this season, and only featured once in the Premier League, playing the full 90 minutes in the 2-1 win over West Ham in September.
His departure frees up a space in the squad for a non-homegrown player, perhaps even a new signing.
Speaking about the decision to let Sead leave, Edu said: “Sead needs to be playing regularly, so we have decided together that a move back to Germany with Schalke will benefit him at this moment. We will be keeping in close contact with Sead, and wish him huge success for the remainder of the season with Schalke.”
Best of luck to him at Schalke.
