Home Bundesliga Schalke 04 Weston McKennie's move to Hertha falls through

Weston McKennie’s move to Hertha falls through

Schalke midfielder Weston McKennie will not be joining Hertha after a proposed move fell through, according to BILD.

Hertha had moved into pole position for McKennie, 21, after English club Southampton backed away from the financial demands.

But McKennie was not fully convinced by the capital club and is instead favouring a move to the Premier League.

Hertha also realised that when combining the fee and salary over the next four or five years, he would cost well over €40m.

The cancellation of the deal comes as a surprise as Hertha had been expected to sign the USA international.

Schalke wanted €25m and Hertha were offering €20m, so the clubs were getting closer to an agreement.

McKennie and Schalke must now wait and see if other clubs step forward.
