Schalke’s Haji Wright to return early from loan


Haji Wright’s loan move from Schalke to Sandhausen was frustrating to say the least, with the American forward struggling for goals.

On Tuesday, Sandhausen announced that the 20-year-old Wright will return to the Bundesliga club this summer after originally being on loan for one year, according to LigaInsider.

Wright made 15 appearances for Sandhausen in 2017-18, scoring one goal on the season. The club finished 11th in the second tier of German football, but Wright was one of six forwards to see the pitch this season for Sandhausen.

The American only made the 18-man squad four times in the second-half of the season, and now returns to his parent club who finished as runners-up in the Bundesliga.

Ahead of the loan to Sandhausen, Schalke manager Domenico Tedesco stated that Wright “was on a very good way, but was still missing a little bit to have a real chance to play with us.”

Wright has represented the U.S. youth national teams at the U-15, U-17, U-18, and U-19 levels but has yet to earn a cap with the senior squad.


  1. I’m also confused by this article. He was loaned for the season. The season is over. What do you mean “a year”?

  2. That’s not early…what is he going to do? Play preseason with a club, then immediately go back to his parent club? Poor understanding of european football as a whole on this site..smh.

  3. Dissapointed but will probably be loaned out again soon if there are teams interested. Maybe just a bad fit or maybe something behind the scenes nobody knows. Good luck Haji
