Newcastle United face competition from Juventus for top Swedish prospect Erik Andersson.

The 15 year-old is tied to Landskrona and has just completed trials at both Toon and Juve.

"I was there (Juve) a week and it was great fun. I trained with players of my age and then we played an internal match," said Andersson.

"Here at Juventus was a community among all players. We talked a lot with each other and were able to hang out even after training sessions. In Newcastle, nobody said anything, everyone was seen as a competitor. Moreover playing was very enjoyable at Juventus."
