Schalke signs Barca defender

Schalke have completed the signing of Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo.
The French youngster arrives on an initial six-month loan with an option to sign permanently.
Schalke is paying €1.5 million for the loan and he can be bought outright for €25 million – with another €5 million potentially due in bonuses.
Barca retain a buy-back option for €50 million, which can be raised to €60 million dependent on Todibo’s success.
The defender joined Barca a year ago from Toulouse, but managed just five appearances.
