Jordan Henderson has joined Schalk 04 as an auxiliary striker, the Bundesliga’s club side have confirmed.
The Liverpool forward joined Schale in the Bundesliga as an unused substitute for the Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund.
Schalke coach Felix Magath said the 23-year-old was one of his “best players” in Germany, and that the signing was “a big surprise”.
“Jordan has made the right decision and we are delighted to welcome him,” Magath told Bild.
“He has a great attitude, and I’m sure he will have a big impact at Schalkel.”
Henderson, who joined Liverpool from Everton for £13.6m in 2012, scored 19 goals in 50 Bundesliga appearances, including one as a substitute, before leaving the club for Schalck for an undisclosed fee in 2015.
In 2016, he scored 10 goals in 13 games for Schaler, before joining the German Bundesliga side, Schalcke, where he played just nine games before joining Borussia Monchengladbach for £18.4m in 2018.
