Schalke 04 are wrapping up the signing of Barcelona defender Jean-Clair Todibo today.

The French youngster is in Germany and expected to put pen to paper on a contract in the coming hours.

BILD says Todibo arrived at Dusseldorf airport on Sunday and was whisked away by waiting Schalke officials. After undergoing a routine medical, the defender will sign terms on-loan to the end of this season.

The agreement does not include a purchase option.

Just last week, German great Lothar Matthaus declared: “Todibo is the best central defender I have seen in a long time. He would be a good reinforcement for Schalke and an enrichment for the Bundesliga.

“At 20, he has an incredible calm, he always finds creative solutions.”
