Newcastle United make Sven Botman transfer breakthrough

Newcastle United have agreed a fee with Lille for Sven Botman.

The club has agreed a deal worth up to £39million including add-ons for the 22-year-old, according to Sky Sports.

Newcastle have faced competition from AC Milan for the Holland Under-21 international.

United must now agree personal terms with Botman, who is keen to make a decision on his future ahead of the start of pre-season training.

Newcastle this week signed goalkeeper Nick Pope from Burnley in a £10million deal.
