Everton are in talks with Newcastle over a move for sought-after Gambian winger Yankuba Minteh, talkSPORT reports.

Minteh, 19, spent last season on loan at Arne Slot’s Feyenoord and is on the radar of several European and Premier League sides. 

It would be a separate deal to Newcastle’s pursuit of Toffees striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin but both moves would help solve the two clubs’ PSR issues.

talkSPORT reported last month that Newcastle had rekindled their interest in long-term target Dominic Calvert-Lewin but talks are not yet at an advanced stage. 

Minteh has been heavily linked with a departure from St. James’ Park this summer after a fine season in the Eredivisie.

Under incoming Liverpool boss Slot, the teenager scored 11 times in 37 appearances in the Dutchman’s attacking Feyenoord side.

It has led to interest from around Europe with clubs such as Roma, Marseille, Borussia Dortmund and even Liverpool to reunite with Slot.

Newcastle only signed the winger in June 2023 before immediately loaning him to Feyenoord.

The Gambia international was signed for around £6million but could now leave and earn the Geordies a profit.
