Gelsenkirchen:

Schalke are set to sign former Germany goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand, with their No.1 Ralf Faehrmann facing a lengthy injury layoff.

Schalke say Hildebrand is expected to sign a contract after completing a medical exam.

Faehrmann tore ligaments in his left knee in last week's 2-1 loss to Kaiserslautern.

His backup Lars Unnerstall played in the 5-0 Europa League win in Larnaka.

Hildebrand was out of contract since spending a season with Sporting Lisbon. He has also played for Stuttgart, Valencia and Hoffenheim and was Germany's third-choice keeper at the 2006 World Cup.
