Newcastle close in on Hazard

Newcastle are reportedly closing in on the signing of Borussia Dortmund star Thorgan Hazard.

The Germans want £12million for the 29-year-old winger, according to Bild.

The 45-cap Belgium star is under contract at Dortmund until 2024.

Bild say he is already one of the top earners at the Bundesliga club.

But they report he is keen to boost his wages to about £6m-per-year – and that is ‘peanuts’ to money-bag Magpies.

The German newspaper also point out Hazard will face competition for his spot next season from the likes of Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, 17, Gio Reyna, 19, and new recruit Karem Adeyemi, 20.
