Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel has now revealed they are considering bringing Rahman back for another loan stint, although any deal depends on the 23-year-old's recovery.

Rahman initially joined Chelsea under then boss Jose Mourinho from Augsburg in the summer of 2015 for a reported £18m.

And, as confirmed by Schalke this afternoon, Rahman could be set for yet another loan spell at the Veltins-Arena this coming season.

Rahman has not played since January after damaging his left knee while representing Ghana in the Africa Cup of Nations.

"We are in talks with the player, his agent and Chelsea", Heidel told Schalke's official website.

'Ultimately, it is about when Baba will be able to play again. No decision has yet been made'.

But with Chelsea struggling for numbers this season, Schalke could be hard-pushed to convince the Premier League side to part with the defender.

"The fact is a transfer is possible until August 31, but our squad is very good in terms of quality and depth".

Antonio Conte has reportedly not ruled out a future at Stamford Bridge for Rahman, but feels the former Greuther Furth standout needs more game-time before he will come into consideration in the English capital.
