A trio of Premier League clubs have joined the race for highly-rated Manchester City youngster Abdisalam Ibrahim.

The 22-year old Somalia-born Norway U23 international has already attracted interest from Newcastle United but now Everton, Hull City and Crystal Palace are reportedly in the queue.

Ibrahim is currently on loan with Norwegian Tippeligaen leaders Stromsgodset but could remain with the club rather than head on loan to the Premier League according to sports director Jostein Flo.

"I think it is speculation," Flo told VG.

"I will have a meeting with (Manchester) City in two or three weeks and then we will probably hear more.

"He is on loan with us until the end of the year, but we would like to keep him."
