Huntelaar was happy to pledge his future to Schalke after signing a two-year contract extension.
"I have thought long and hard about this decision and I am very grateful to my managers of FC Schalke have given this time. But now I have made the decision in which I have the best feeling," Huntelaar told the club's official website.
"I've always felt comfortable at Schalke, the club and its fans."
