Christoph Moritz to leave Schalke

Schalke midfielder Christoph Moritz will leave the Royal Blues at the end of the season in order to gain more playing time, general manager Horst Heldt has said.

Moritz, 23, is in the last year of his contract and a move to Mainz is believed to be his preferred option.

“We were in talks [over a new contract] for nine months,” Heldt explained. “He believes that he will get more playing time when he moves.”

According to Mainzer Rhein Zeitung, Moritz will sign a contract at Mainz until 2017.

Mainz general manager Christian Heidel said the deal could be negotiated in the January transfer window.

“Christoph Moritz is a very interesting player,” he said. “We tried to get him during the summer, but we could not make the transfer happen. In theory, nothing could happen during the winter. We don’t have to do anything. If we make a move now, it would only be in advance of next season.”

Moritz, a Germany Under-21 international, has only played 23 games due to injuries since his first season with Schalke in 2009-2010.

This season, the defensive midfielder has played just over 20 minutes in three substitute appearances.
