Update: Schalke has best papers for Van den Berg, also other club in the race

Everything indicated that Sepp van den Berg would be rented out by Liverpool to a Championship club, but the defender is likely to leave for Germany. Schalke 04 brings Van den Berg to the Bundesliga.
This is reported by English and German media. Van den Berg was good at Championship clubs, including Burnley and Blackburn Rovers, but Schalke seems to be winning the battle. The transfer must be completed soon. It is reportedly a rental deal for the duration of one season.
It was already in line with the expectation that Van den Berg would be rented out. Manager Jรผrgen Klopp kept him on the bench in the first four games and so it looked less sporty for him. Van den Bergs contract continues until the summer of 2024, when he was transferred from PEC Zwolle in 2019.
Update: Schalke 04 does indeed have the best papers, but there is another club from Germany in the race for Van den Berg. According to German media, Van den Berg has several conversations on the agenda on Monday evening and Tuesday morning. It is not known who the other club is. It would be 1. FC Kรถln.
