Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has confirmed he will leave Schalke when his contract expires at the end of the season.
The Dutch international has spent the last seven seasons at the Veltins-Arena but has found first-team opportunities difficult to come by this term, starting just five Bundesliga matches, while his only goal of the league campaign came against Cologne in September.
The 33-year-old has now confirmed he will be pursuing first-team opportunities elsewhere although he is yet to decide where his next move will take him.
“I am not satisfied with the way things are going at Schalke right now. I have an expiring contract so this is my last year here,” Huntelaar told De Telegraaf.
“My next move will be a gut decision. I really like playing football but I have four kids and there are so many fun things to do.”
The former Real Madrid and AC Milan forward believes he still has the quality to deliver at the highest level despite his lack of first-team opportunities this season.
He added: “We will see what happens, what kind of offers come in and then I will make a decision.”
