Schalke striker Michael Delura has agreed a move to Greek outfit Panionios.

The 22-year-old put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal on Wednesday after being told that that he would not be featuring in Schalke boss Mirko Slomka's plans for the coming season.

Once regarded as one of the hottest prospects in German football, Delura failed to make the grade at the Veltins Arena and, after loan spells at Hannover and Borussia Monchengladbach, he now hopes to get his career back on track by teaming up with German coach Ewald Lienen at Panionios.

"We wish Michael all the best for the new challenge and hope that he will be able to develop as a player and collect valuable experiences there," Schalke team manager Andreas Muller told the club's official website.

No details have been revealed regarding the transfer fee for the former Germany Under 21 international.
