Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has put off talks over a new deal until after Euro 2012.

The Bundesliga club are keen to ward off potential suitors by offering Huntelaar a fresh contract as reward for the Dutchman's stunning form.

Schalke revealed earlier this month they are prepared to break the bank to keep the 28-year-old with the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham reported to be keeping tabs on his situation.

Huntelaar still has over a year left on his current contract but Schalke are ready to offer him a lucrative two-year extension.

However, Huntelaar has revealed he does not want to think about his future until after this summer's Euro 2012 finals with Holland.

"There will be time to gather my thoughts after the season," Huntelaar told Bild.

"Before then, I want to focus on scoring goals and not let myself be distracted at the European Championships."
