Ibrahim Afellay says he is enjoying his spell on loan with Schalke but does not expect to find out where his future lies until the end of the season.

Afellay joined Schalke on a year-long deal from Barcelona in the summer and has performed well for the German club this term.

He has been impressed by the quality of the Bundesliga and is looking forward to the rest of the campaign, before returning to Spain to hold talks with Barca.

"I have two years left on my Barcelona deal next summer," he told Bild.

"I am actually enjoying my loan spell in the Bundesliga, I like very much being at Schalke.

"We will see what might happen in the summer. I am sure we will have a few chats come the end of the campaign.

"I don't think anyone is able to know what will happen in the future."

Afellay has helped Schalke progress to the last 16 of the Champions League, where they will be joined by fellow group winners Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

"The Bundesliga is a strong competition," said Afellay. "You can see that. Everyone knows how strong German teams are in European club competitions this season.

"No German team there has been eliminated. This is a signal of how strong this competition is."
