British League of Legends mid-laner Marc “Caedrel” Robert Lamont has joined Schalke 04 Esports.
That’s according to the League of Legends contract database and an article on esport.kicker.de.
He joins Memento, SmittyJ, Upset and Norskeren on the Schalke roster, who are all contracted until September 30th this year.
Caedrel was previously a substitute for H2K. He recently hinted at some upcoming news earlier this month:

Caedrel will be playing with Schalke in the EU Challenger Series, along with PSG, Giants, two teams from the Challenger Series Qualifiers and Origen.
However, a Reddit post shows that xPeke and Cyanide have been removed from Origen’s roster on the LoL contract database, casting Origen’s future into doubt.
Both Schalke and Origen dropped out of the EU LCS into the lower-tier Challenger Series earlier this year.
An official roster announcement from Schalke is expected soon.
