Baba Rahman will not be joining Schalke 04 in the current transfer window, with the German club withdrawing from talks with Chelsea over a proposed transfer.
The Royal Blues were hoping to sign the left-back on loan for the course of a season, just as they did a year ago.
However, Rahman is still recovering from a major knee injury he sustained while representing the Black Stars at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
As a result, Schalke management have stepped back from negotiations, ending any hopes of a move for the player in the current transfer window.
Rahman’s agent, Sascha Empacher, has confirmed to Fussball Transfers that talks with Schalke have been postponed until January 2018.
The German club remain keen on re-signing the Ghana star, but will wait until the European winter transfer window, giving him more time to recover and regain fitness.
