Ireland U17 International Keeper Completes Bundesliga Move

Dan Rose has signed for Schalke 04.

The Ireland U17 player and his representatives confirmed on Wednesday that he will leave Everton and join the Bundesliga side.

Rose played for the Everton U18s this season.

The Liverpool Echo reports that Rose turned down a scholarship offer from Everton and that the club will be due training compensation from the German team.

Rose, who was born in England, qualifies to play for Ireland through his Irish mother. He was part of Colin O'Brien's Ireland U17 group which qualified for the elite round of the European Championships last year.
