Franco di Santo leaving Bremen for Bundesliga rival Schalke

BREMEN, Germany (AP) Werder Bremen says Argentine striker Franco di Santo is leaving the club.

German media say di Santo is joining Bundesliga rival Schalke, although neither club has confirmed the move. Werder did not give di Santo's destination.

The Argentine had been offered an extension of his contract with Werder that would have expired at the end of the season but instead chose to use an exit clause and leave the club.
