Chelsea full-back Baba Rahman has returned to Schalke 04 on loan after recovering from a knee injury.
An official statement on the Blues website read:
Baba Rahman has today joined Schalke on loan until the end of the 2018/19 season.
The Ghanaian defender, 23, re-joins the Bundesliga side, where he spent the first half of last season before sustaining a knee injury during the Africa Cup of Nations.
Baba signed for Chelsea from another German side, Augsburg, in the summer of 2015 and made 23 appearances during his maiden season at Stamford Bridge.
Schalke are currently third in the Bundesliga.
The Ghana international made 21 appearances on loan at Schalke in the 2016-17 season before his campaign was cut short by a cruciate ligament injury while in action for his country at the African Nations Cup last January.
