Bayer Leverkusen sign Kyriakos Papadopoulos from Schalke

Bayer Leverkusen have completed the permanent signing of Kyriakos Papadopoulos from Schalke after the centre-back spent the season on loan at the BayArena.

The Greece international spent four seasons with Schalke before joining Roger Schmidt's side on loan last summer, going on to make 14 Bundesliga appearance and scoring twice.

“Kyriakos Papadopoulos sees his future at Leverkusen,” explained Schalke's sporting director Horst Heldt. “We have met his wishes and give him our best.”
