1. FC Köln and Mark Uth (29). Nothing should stand in the way of the Schalke’s return.
BILD had already reported exclusively on the Cologne plan: Uth is to come for 1.7 million euros in salary, free of charge and initially for two years (plus option). The transfer was negotiated before his dismissal by ex-sports boss Horst Heldt (51).
On Wednesday evening, Cologne’s club bosses also nodded the transfer in principle. At 7 p.m., the joint committee at Geißbockheim – Cologne’s board of directors around President Werner Wolf (64) met with the member board bosses, the supervisory board and the advisory board boss to approve the Uth plan presented by managing director Alexander Wehrle (46) .
Result: The final details have yet to be clarified or changed in the Heldt deal. A Uth agreement with Schalke must be reached. The Cologne native can then immediately sign with FC and continue his successful loan period in 2020, when he was significantly involved in the FC rescue under former coach Markus Gisdol (51)
This time, with Steffen Baumgart (49), a new coach is waiting for Uth. And before his vacation he had already insisted on getting Schalke, even talked to Uth himself.
