Klaas-Jan Huntelaar won't be joined Manchester United or Chelsea this summer, according to Schalke boss Horst Heldt.
The Dutch striker netted 29 goals in the Bundesliga last season and has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer.
Chelsea were understood to be keen to sign the 28-year-old as replacement for Didier Drogba.

'Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is still under contract with our club,' Heldt told German newspaper Reviersport.
