The striker left Weldons Arena for the stadium Ludo Gortes Arena last summer on a short-term contract after struggling for first-team chances in the previous team.
This is the second time Schalke have had to leave Schalke on a permanent contract after the club sold him to Paderborn in 2018 before exercising backup options after a purchase to bring him back to Valentine Arena a year later.
“Bernard Tekpe has joined Ludo Gortz Rezgrad on a permanent contract. The Ghanaian forward originally moved there last summer on a two-year loan deal, but the Bulgarian champions have now agreed to sign it permanently. Schalke’s 23-year contract will run until 2023, “Schalke announced Official website.
Last season, Teppetti made 25 league appearances for Ludo Gortes, starting with 17 and scoring twice to help the club with a high-flying Bulgarian. He also contributed as soon as the Eagles won the Super Cup.
“This exchange means a lot to all parties. Bernard Ludogourts has a really good place to live and won the award with him last season. Leaving it permanently was also financially beneficial for us. We wish Bernard all the best for the future, “said Rowan Schroeder, Schalke Sports Director.
Tekpatti signed for Schalke in 2016 from Ghana’s lower division organization Unistar Academy. In November of that year, he made his professional debut for The Royals in the Europa League clash with Frenchman OGC Nice.
He played in three leagues in the 2016 Bundesliga season in the German Bundesliga, before being forced by Austria to lend to Reindorf Altach in the 2017-18 season.
In the summer of 2018, Tekpeti was sold to the then German Bundesliga 2 side Paderborn but was bought back by Schalke just a year later.
He spent the 2019-20 season on loan at Fortuna Dسلsseldorf before joining Ludo Gortz last summer on loan.
The 23-year-old is a full-fledged international from Ghana, who clashed with Egypt in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
