Matija Nastasic has joined German side Schalke 04 on loan until the end of the season.

This morning has seen plenty of confusion regarding one Manchester City transfer, Wilfried Bony's move from Swansea City, but a player has also left City. Matija Nastasic has now been confirmed as a Schalke 04 player by the club's official Twitter account.

They confirmed: "Completed medical check, signed contract: Matija #Nastasic plays for #Schalke!"

They even took the opportunity to snap him in his new get up, as the Manchester City player looks for some regular first-team football in Germany.

The club have also confirmed on their official website that a loan deal for the player has been agreed, with a purchase option also included for the deal's conclusion.

Nastasic arrived at Manchester City as part of an exchange deal that saw Stefan Savic go in the opposite direction to Fiorentina.

He featured regularly in his first season at the club but first-team appearances dwindled last season and this time around he has featured just once for the club.

The 21-year-old will be hoping to prove a point in the Bundesliga under the management of Roberto Di Matteo.
