German Bundesliga side Fortuna Dusseldorf are in contention to seal a loan deal for Schalke 04 striker Bernard Tekpetey according to Ghana Soccernet.

The budding striker then moved up to the first team squad in the summer of 2016, going on to make two Bundesliga appearances and one Europa League appearance for the club.

Tekpetey joined Austrian top tier side SCR Altach for the 2017/18 season and made 10 league appearances, scoring one goal.
