• At 17 years 117 days he became the youngest Schalke player ever to appear in the Bundesliga – and the fourth youngest debutant in the competition's history.

• Scored his first Schalke goal in the 119th minute of a German Cup quarter-final against 1. FC Nürnberg to win the match 3-2 and went on to start the final in Berlin, which his team won 5-0 versus MSV Duisburg.

• Made six appearances in 2010/11 UEFA Champions League, his first start coming in the second leg of the semi-final against Manchester United FC at Old Trafford; scored twice in the following season's UEFA Europa League as Schalke reached the quarter-finals.

• Increased Bundesliga activity in 2011/12 earned him representation for Germany's Under-19 and U21 teams and a surprise call-up to the senior side's provisional UEFA EURO 2012 party, making his debut as a substitute in May's 5-3 friendly loss to Switzerland, though failed to make the final 23. 

• Scored ten times in 30 Bundesliga appearances in 2012/13, inspring his side to a fourth-placed finish and a UEFA Champions League spot, before scoring his first international goal in June 2013 against the United States.
