Aleksandar Mitrovic fly’s back to the UK – Sky Sports confirm NUFC have accepted Fulham bid

Some breaking news in the last few moments, confirming that Aleksandar Mitrovic is now flying back to the UK after Fulham had a bid accepted for the striker.

The Serbian had travelled with the squad to Portugal ahead of friendlies with Porto tonight and Braga next Wednesday, however it seems his move back to Craven Cottage is now all set to go through after the two clubs finally agreed a fee.

Here’s confirmation from Sky’s Keith Downie:

It had been reported that Fulham were only prepared to pay £16m – with us demanding a minimum of £18m – but it looks like a compromise has now been met.

As confirmed by Lee Ryder, this should now ‘trigger’ the arrival of another striker – perhaps Salomon Rondon?

The fee is not yet known but it’s expected to be in the region of £18m.
