Hoffenheim chief Rosen on Joelinton: Newcastle deal closer

Hoffenheim chief Alexander Rosen admits Joelinton is a step away from joining Newcastle United.

Joelinton and his agent have been on Tyneside since midway through last week.

Kicker says Hoffenheim have softened their stand over the striker's €53m asking price.

Instead of demanding it all up front, Hoffenheim and Newcastle are now finalising terms over €44m cash plus a further €9m due in bonuses.

Rosen told Kicker: "We are on the home straight, but not over the finish line."
