The Bundesliga side's sporting director has confirmed that an agreement has been reached with the Serie A club over a temporary transfer

Marko Pjaca is set to join Schalke on loan from Juventus, according to the Bundesliga club's sporting director Christian Heidel.

Juve head coach Massimiliano Allegri has hinted Pjaca would be allowed to leave on a temporary basis, having failed to make a single Serie A appearance this season.

Schalke appear to have won the race to sign the Croatia international, with the completion of a loan move expected imminently.

"As things stand, Marko Pjaca will be joining us tomorrow [Thursday]," Heidel said.

"Everything has been agreed verbally, and we have the medical lined up for tomorrow."
