Yankuba Minteh's agent has confirmed that the Newcastle United winger has agreed terms with an unnamed club.

Liverpool have been linked with the 19-year-old who spent last season on loan at Arne Slot's Feyenoord. Minteh impressed in the Netherlands, scoring 11 goals and providing six assists across all competitions for the Dutch club in 2023/24.

However, Newcastle are looking to sell the Gambian international with the Magpies reportedly wanting £40million for Minteh ahead of the PSR health check deadline on June 30. Marseille, Borussia Dortmund and AS Roma are said to be interested while Everton were also believed to be in the mix.

And the player's agent Bakary Bojang told our colleagues at Chronicle Live on Saturday morning that they were in communication with other clubs.

He said: "It is correct that Newcastle are willing to sell the player if they receive a good offer. From our side if Newcastle wants to sell and the sporting project is good we will definitely look at it. We are in communication with some clubs."

But by Saturday evening the deal had progressed and Mr Bojang added: "I can't confirm clubs who are in communication with us. We have agreed terms with one of the clubs. So now the rest is with Newcastle."

Newcastle's loan manager Shola Ameobi had been delighted with Minteh's progress after a successful loan with Feyenoord. He said last month: "Yankuba Minteh done amazingly this year. I think the vision for him was to see if he could play at that level.

"It was a big jump coming from Denmark with Odense but what he's done and the attitude he's got he's achieved that. He is athletically gifted but we knew he would develop tactically and technically."
