Schalke have confirmed that midfielder Anthony Annan is in discussions about a move to an unnamed Spanish club.

The Ghana international spent last season on loan at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem after struggling to make an impression at the Veltins Arena.

And Schalke general manager Horst Heldt is prepared to allow the 26-year-old to leave the Bundesliga outfit after receiving an acceptable bid.

"There has been a concrete offer submitted," Heldt told Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung.

"It is a good option for Tony and we have accepted.

"This offer will now be discussed by Anthony Annan and his agent."

Annan has been strongly linked with a transfer to either Primera Liga outfit Osasuna or Belgian giants Anderlecht but the Spanish side appear to have done enough to secure his signature.
