Newcastle Agree On A Decent Fee For Unwanted Striker

The 26-year-old, who played for Japan at this summer's World Cup, scored a personal-high eight goals in 27 matches in his third season with the German club.

The Cottagers have been wrangling with Newcastle over a price for the Serbia striker, who was a key figure in their promotion push after spending the second half of last season on loan at Craven Cottage.

A story that has rumbled on for months, it seems that Aleksandar Mitrovic's permanent transfer to Fulham is set to go ahead as Sky Sports stated over the weekend he was in London finalising his transfer to the newly-promoted club.

Newcastle have already brought in one striker this summer, with Yoshinori Muto signing up for the season.
