Newcastle have been keen to sell Minteh, who spent last season on loan at Feyenoord, to meet strict Profit and Sustainability rule regulations (PSR).

The premier league club have given permission to the Gambia international to speak to Brighton. 

Newcastle have looked to offload the 19-year-old before June 30, which marks the end of the financial year in the Premier League and has had clubs rushing to meet the PSR deadlines.

Making this sale will allow Newcastle to keep hold of their star trio Alexander Isak, Bruno Guimares and Anthony Gordon, who had been linked with moves away to settle the club’s PSR problems.

There was plenty of interest in Minteh over the past four weeks following a stunning campaign under Arne Slot – Liverpool’s new manager.

In 27 Eredivisie matches on loan at Feyenoord, the wonderkid scored 11 times and was a huge part of the side that won the KNVB Cup.

Everton were interested in the youngster, as well as Lyon, Marseille, Borussia Dortmund and Roma.

But Minteh was only interested in staying in the Premier League and the deal suits all parties.

The Gambia international only signed last summer at Newcastle from Danish club Odense Boldklub.

However, he was loaned out immediately to Feyenoord where he became a key player.

Brighton are keen to bring in reinforcements and back their new manager Fabian Hurzeler, who has replaced Roberto De Zerbi.
