Newcastle United ‘have bid accepted for Hugo Ekitike’

Newcastle United have reportedly had a bid accepted for Reims striker Hugo Ekitike.

Despite having already signed Chris Wood from Burnley earlier in the January transfer window, the Magpies have remained in the market for a second frontman.

Ekitike, who has contributed eight goals and two assists in Ligue 1 this season, was identified as a target several weeks ago, and it now appears that Newcastle have made a breakthrough in negotiations.

According to Sky Sports News, Reims have accepted Newcastle’s latest offer for the 19-year-old, said to be between £20m and £25m.

While the prospect also has admirers in West Ham United, Newcastle now appear to be favourites to get a deal over the line before Monday’s transfer deadline.

The North-East outfit are also attempting to get a deal for Brighton & Hove Albion defender Dan Burn over the line, while interest remains in Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard.
