Newcastle Accept Brighton’s £33m Bid for Yankuba Minteh

Newcastle have accepted an offer of around £33million from Brighton for Yankuba Minteh, and that could be enough to keep stars such as Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon at the club.

The Magpies have been battling to avoid a Premier League points deduction for failing to comply with Profit and Sustainability Rules, and they need to sell before Sunday night’s accounting-period deadline.

Minteh, 19, is now set for a medical with the South Coast club.

The Gambia international had also been offered to Nottingham Forest as Newcastle tried various permutations to meet their PSR requirements.

Mail Sport revealed last week that Lyon had offered £40m for the winger which Newcastle were ready to accept but the Gambia international was reluctant to go and was holding out for Everton.

However, Everton was only available if Dominic Calvert-Lewin went the other way.

Brighton have remained in the race and Minteh was keen on joining them despite the club being reluctant to meet Newcastle’s £35m asking price.

The club did consider offering one of their players as part of the deal too, but it is understood the offer wasn’t in a position Newcastle needed. 

Elliot Anderson has also been discussed in negotiations with Forest as first revealed by Mail Sport on Saturday.
