Swedish starlet Samuel Adjei is hoping to seal a move to Newcastle United.
The 17-year-old currently plays for lower league Swedish side Jonkoping Sodra.
But he has featured for Sweden's Under-16 side and he has caught the eye of a number of foreign clubs, with Newcastle and Porto believed to be leading the chase.
Now Newcastle are understood to have made a bid for the winger, who himself is delighted with The Magpies' interest
"Chances like these don't just grow on trees, so when it appears you wanna grab it," he told his local newspaper Jnytt.
Adjei spent time training with Newcastle in November and he looks to have done enough to persuade the club to finalise a bid for him.
"The interest is big and they want me, I hope that Newcastle and Jonkoping Sodra can make an agreement."
Jonkoping are not convinced that Adjei will be leaving.
"Both we and Newcastle have seen there is an interest around Samuel," said director Daniel Segerfeldt.
"Our approach is that he is going to play for us."
No Donadel deal
One player seemingly not on his way to St James' Park is Marco Donadel, after his agent denied that he was having talks with the North East club.
It was claimed that the 24-year-old Fiorentina midfielder was keen on a move to England.
"There is nothing new at the moment, but we are prepared to assess any offers that do arrive," Davide Lippi told Firenzeviola.it.
"Marco has several suitors, not only in Italy but also abroad, even though he has rarely played this season.
"However, he would like to remain in Florence as he wants to live in the city for a long time.
"There are no concrete offers right now, but there comes a time in every footballer's career when you have to make an inevitable choice..."
Donadel has been with Fiorentina since 2005, after joining from AC Milan.
Meanwhile, Newcastle have confirmed that young Hungarian defender Tamas Kadar will miss the rest of the season after he broke his leg during a reserve team match.
"It's a blow to the boy and to the first-team squad," coach Richard Money said.
"He's been on the bench recently and has made himself part of that squad because he's been playing very well.
"It put a downer on what was an otherwise terrific win.
"We wish him all the best and I know he's got the character to come back."
