According to a report from the Daily Mail, Newcastle United are among a host of clubs to have expressed an interest in signing Kosovo international Donis Avdijaj.

FC Schalke 04 are claimed to be ready to cut their losses with the playmaker, who has failed to live up to his early potential during his days in the youth system.

Avdijaj is only 21-years-old at the moment but it appears as though Schalke have lost patience with the player and are willing to allow him to seek pastures new.

The attacking midfielder could be available for a fee as low as £2.5 million, which is certainly an affordable sum for Newcastle.

Avdijaj has only one year remaining on his current deal at Schalke, with Domenico Tedesco’s side now looking to cash in on the player following his lack of development in recent seasons.

Schalke finished the Bundesliga in 2nd place and evidently deem the midfielder surplus to their requirements going forward.

Newcastle are joined by Everton and Huddersfield Town in their apparent interest in Avdijaj.
