The 21-year-old left the Royal Blues last summer to join SC Paderborn and play in Germany’s second tier but returns to the club after just one season.
But following a successful season in which he scored ten goals and provided six assists in 32 appearances to help Paderborn qualify, he has been rewarded with a place in Schalke's team for next season.
Despite his exploits, Tekpetey failed to make Kwesi Appiah's Black Stars squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
