Dutch international midfielder
Ibrahim Afellay has joined Schalke 04 on a one-year loan from
Barcelona, the Bundesliga club said Friday.
"He has special qualities and can play in several
positions," said Schalke 04 coach Huub Stevens, who was also
Afellay's coach for a year at PSV Eindhoven.
The 26-year-old, who has been at Barcelona for 18 months,
has won 41 caps and was in the Dutch squads for Euro 2008 and
2012 as well as the 2010 World Cup.
He made a promising start at Barcelona until he suffered a
serious knee injury a year ago.
