Gerald Asamoah is back in form and the Germany international could be rewarded with a new contract offer by Schalke.
The 29-year-born is under contract until next June, but his current form could earn him a new deal in Gelsenkirchen.
The Ghana-born forward has had a fine week as he scored a decisive goal in the 3-1 victory over Rosenborg in the Champions League to help Schalke into the last 16.
Asamoah continued to shine at the weekend, as he headed home in the 2-1 victory over Nurnberg.
The attacker has been linked with a move to Hanover, but he has delighted manager Mirko Slomka with his performances.
?Gerald leaving has never been part of our plans,? he said.
?He is an important player in the squad and we want to continue the adventure with him after this season.?
