Schalke poised for double swoop
Ronny Johnsen in action for Manchester United against Liverpool
Johnsen has passed a medical at Schalke
Schalke are set to sign Norweigian internationals Ronny Johnsen and Oyvind Leonhardsen.

Former Manchester United defender Johnsen and Spurs midfielder Leonhardsen have both passed medicals.

The pair will now have a one-week trial with a view to a permanent signing.

"The ability of the two players is proven, but coach Frank Neubarth wants to see what condition they are in and if they can help us," said Schalke manager Andreas Mueller.

Schalke are in desperate need of new signings after only having 13 fit players available for their opening Bundesliga game against Wolfsburg.

Manchester United declined to give 33-year-old Johnsen a contract extension this summer.

Leonhardsen's White Hart Lane contract expires in 2003.
