Swedish wonderkid Adjei on his way to Newcastle

Swedish wonderkid Adjei on his way to Newcastle

Newcastle United are close to signing one of Sweden's most talented youngsters after putting in a bid to sign Jonkoping Sodra's 17-year-old wingman Samuel Adjei, reports SkySports.com

Adjei trained with the Magpies in November and he looks to have done enough to persuade the club to put in a serious bid for him.

He is relishing the chance of plying his trade in Newcastle, and has acknowledged what a big opportunity this is for him.

'Chances like these don't just grow on trees, so when it appears you wanna grab it,' he told his local newspaper Jnytt.

The highly-rated youngster wants to move to St.James' Park as soon as possible and has urged his current club not to stand in the way of his potential transfer to the North-East.

'The interest is big and they want me, I hope that Newcastle and Jonkoping Sodra can make an agreement,' Adjei added.

The move however may face complications due to Jonkoping Sodra's reluctance to part company with a player who they see as a future ticket to big money.

'Both we and Newcastle have seen there is an interest around Samuel,' said Jonkoping Sodra director Daniel Segerfeldt.

'Our approach is that he is going to play for us.'

Since the player is keen on the move, and the Magpies are offering upfront cash payments for the transfer, the move is likely to happen in the coming week.

One more for the Newcastle United Academy.
