Schalke's Heldt: No interest in Wiese

The out-of-contract Germany international has been linked with a move to the Veltins-Arena but the club are happy with the current crop of goalkeepers

sporting director Horst Heldt has ruled out the possibility of his club making a move for Wolfsburg’s Tim Wiese at the end of the season.

Wiese is out of contract in the summer and has already confirmed his intention to leave the Weserstadion on a free transfer.

The Germany international recently hinted at a switch to a club in the Champions League but Heldt insists that there is no chance of the 30-year-old goalkeeper arriving in Gelsenkirchen whether they qualify for the tournament or not.

"It annoys me that his name is brought up,” he told “It's wrong and does not make sense.

“We have not even said that we are looking for a new goalkeeper. I think it's disrespectful to the other lads.

“I think it's great what they have done, that you no longer think about Manuel Neuer [who left Schalke for Bayern Munich last summer].

"I'd like to read someday that they played well - and nothing about Wiese, [Kevin] Trapp or [Ron-Robert] Zieler."

Wiese, who has been capped six times by Germany, joined Bremen from Kaiserslautern in 2005.
