Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has hinted that he could see out the rest of his career with his current club Schalke.

The Dutch forward, 29, recently signed a new deal at the German club which sees him contracted to the club until 2015 and has hinted that he may well retire there.

Last season saw the striker crowned top goal scorer in the Bundesliga and the former Real Madrid man appears to have settled with the Konigsblauen having scored 72 goals in only 112 appearances.

Despite a vast improvement on last season's 14th place finish, Huntelaar is not pleased with this current season as his team lie nine points off the Champions League places.

"It is very well possible that I sign another extension with Schalke. I could sign another contract here at the age of 32. Retiring here is an option for me," Huntelaar told Sport Bild.

"I am not satisfied with the way things have been going so far this season, both with my own performances and with the team's displays."
