Report: Newcastle have opened negotiations with Joelinton
Joelinton is reportedly meeting with representatives from Newcastle United.
When Hoffenheim take on Jahn Regensburg in a friendly today, Joelinton will not be part of the Bundesliga club's squad – and there's a good reason for that.
According to Kicker, Joelinton and his agent are currently meeting with representatives from Newcastle United to discuss a possible move to England this summer. The 22-year-old should cost around €40 million, as per the report.
Yesterday, Hoffenheim still expected Joelinton to travel to the club's training camp in Austria on Thursday, but he might not be going after all now that negotiations with Newcastle are underway.
The Brazilian striker scored 11 goals in 35 appearances for Hoffenheim last season.
