Finally it`s a done deal!
17 year old Georgian offensive midfielder signed a 4 year deal with German vice-champions after training with their U-19 side for the past few weeks. Until turning 18 in November, Levan will only have the permission to play with the youth side and then move on to the 1.Bundesliga squad. .
Kenia had his first national team cap against Ukraine in September and fully established himself as a starter in the playmaker position. After his brilliant game in the 2-0 victory over Scotland several of Europe’s leading teams became interested in signing him, but he has chosen Schalke because of the perspective of playing in the Bundesliga very soon and being able to be in the same team with fellow Georgian international Levan Kobiashvili.
Levan played for Locomotive Tbilisi before going to Gelsenkirchen.
