Schalke's Joel Matip has not agreed Liverpool move - Clemens Tonnies

Joel Matip represented Cameroon at the 2014 World Cup.

Schalke chairman Clemens Tonnies has labelled reports claiming defender Joel Matip has already agreed terms with Liverpool "a hoax."

Matip, 24, has so far been reluctant to put pen to a paper on a new contract at Schalke, the club he has played for since he was nine, with his current deal due to expire in the summer.

Over the past few weeks, several outlets reported that Liverpool are keen to bring the centre-back to Premier League.

On Wednesday, Sport Bild reported that the deal to sign Matip on a free is all but done.

Der Westen also claimed that the defender had a "positive meeting" with an English club, said to be Liverpool.

"That's a hoax," Tonnies told Sport 1.

Later on Thursday, sporting director Horst Heldt said via the club's official Twitter account that no deal had been struck over a January move to Anfield for Matip.

The Royal Blues announced in December they have agreed another meeting in late January with Matip's agent, Alexander Schutt, following "good talks" with the player's representative.

"Then it'll make sense to have a decision. That's important for everyone -- for Joel and FC Schalke 04," Heldt said at that time.

 

Matip, who represented Cameroon at the 2014 World Cup, has featured for Schalke in all 18 Bundesliga matches, and has not missed a minute so far.

He was on target in the Royal Blues' 3-1 loss against Werder Bremen last Sunday, and has scored a total of three goals this term.

Schalke have ruled out selling the player during the winter transfer period.
