Arsenal youngster Havard Nordtveit is close to being sold to German club Borussia Monchengladbach.

The 19-year old defender is a free agent in summer but the Gunners are keen to offload him and should get around £2million in the January transfer window.

Nordtveit arrived at Arsenal in 2007 from Norwegian club FK Haugesund but has not been involved in a Premier League game during his Emirates stay in which he has been loaned out on three occasions to Salamanca, Lillestrom and Nuremberg.
