Newcastle Linked With Move For Manchester City Midfielder
Newcastle United are reportedly in the hunt for the signature of promising Manchester City midfielder Abdisalam Ibrahim.
The young Norwegian is currently on loan at Stromsgodset, his third loan deal since joining City, and is already allegedly attracting the attentions of the likes of Sevilla, Espanyol, Real Betis, Lyon, Lille, Saint-Etienne, Bordeaux, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce.
His current contract with the Eastlands club is due to expire at the end of this season and it is expected that the young midfield player will be allowed to leave in January or allowed to let his contract run down and leave next summer as a free agent.
Ibrahim has been capped by Norway at youth level and made two appearances for the Norway under-21 side that got to the semi-finals of the European Championships in Israel this summer.
The City prospect is being compared favourably to former City and Arsenal midfielder Patrick Vieira, though he has slipped down the pecking order under Manuel Pellegrini.
