Report: Aleksandar Mitrovic agrees personal terms with Newcastle

St James Park

Newcastle United look to be on the verge of signing Aleksandar Mitrovic.

As reported by Belgian media outlet HLN, Anderlecht forward Aleksandar Mitrovic has agreed terms with Newcastle ahead of a summer transfer.

It is stated that he is ready to confirm a five-year contract with the club, with the transfer expected to be finalised this week.

The Tyneside club opened formal negotiations with Anderlecht yesterday, and it now appears as if a deal is just days from being completed. In the report is states that the deal could be completed this week, although there are no references as to whether the Magpies have had an offer accepted by his current club.

With talks ongoing with the player before a transfer fee has actually been agreed, there is a chance that a deal could still stall, but the report suggests that a deal is close to being struck between the two clubs.

There is no indication as to a fee Newcastle will have to pay to bring Mitrovic to the Premier League, although it is stated that Anderlecht have been asking for roughly £13 million for the 20-year-old.

If a deal does get completed, the Magpies will be signing a striker of real ability and potential, and they will be hoping he continues his prolific scoring feats in the Premier League.
