11:00 AM ET 02.02 | Schalke's director of sport Horst Heldt has admitted he turned down a "decent" bid for Julian Draxler last week. The 20-year-old Germany international, who has a 37million release clause in his contract with the Bundesliga club, was strongly linked with a move to Arsenal during the transfer window. However no deal was agreed between the clubs and Heldt has hinted the offer he received did not come from the Gunners after revealing it "came from a club to the north of us".
