RB Salzburg wonderkid Benjamin Sesko's agent gives cryptic transfer hint as they share photos landing in Newcastle | The Sun

BENJAMIN SESKO'S agents have fuelled speculation of an imminent deal with Newcastle after an apparent trip to Tyneside.

The Red Bull Salzburg starlet, 19, has been linked with a move to the Magpies, who are still looking for a new striker as top target and Reims star Hugo Ekitike has "agreed a deal in principle" to join Paris Saint-Germain.
