Newcastle, however, didn’t make the move permanent.

Bentaleb, 26, returned to the fold at the Veltins Arena, though he has now been suspended “until further notice”.

Sporting director Jochen Schneider said: “Schalke and Bentaleb clearly aren't a good fit. We will part ways by summer 2021 at the latest."
