Chelsea left-back Baba Rahman has been cleared to join Schalke’s training camp in Austria as he nears a loan departure from Stamford Bridge, according to 101greatgoals.

The Ghana international, who has passed a medical with the Bundesliga side on Sunday, joined Chelsea from Augsburg last summer on a five-year deal for an undisclosed fee which reported to be an initial £14 million.

However, he struggled to make an impact under Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink, making just 11 Premier League starts across the season and the 22-year-old joins his former Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl at Schalke.
