Schalke signs goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand

Berlin: Bundesliga football club Schalke has signed goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old former German international goalkeeper was out of contract and joined Schalke to step in for Ralf Faehrmann, who heavily injured his left knee in his last Bundesliga game.

"He has a lot of experience, the best goalkeeper age and he has an advantage, he kept himself fit at another club," Schalke sports director Horst Heldt was quoted as saying by a news agency on Friday.
