Odds slashed from 25/1 to 2/1 for Newcastle to sign free agent after claims of fresh approach

Some intriguing movement has been spotted on Sky Bet regarding Christian Eriksen – the in-demand midfielder up for grabs following his release from Brentford.

The bookmaker had him priced at 25/1 to join Newcastle United yesterday, however those odds have now been slashed to just 2/1, highlighting a big swing in the space of 24 hours.

This comes after widespread reports revealed that we are one of several Premier League clubs interested in signing the Danish international on a free transfer.

Last month, we released an exclusive – via Jacque Talbot – reporting that the the player was due to hold face-to-face talks with Eddie Howe, while Football London confirmed earlier this week that we’d made a move.

Manchester United remain the bookies favourites at 6/4, however The Guardian report that the 30-year-old has ‘turned down’ a proposal from the Red Devils.

Mark Douglas has added to this today, revealing in his latest piece for iNews that Newcastle have been in touch with Eriksen’s representatives over a potential move to St James’ Park.

Brentford are still fighting to keep him and there’s talk of serious interest from former club Spurs, so it’ll be interesting to see where he ends up. Here’s how Sky Bet have it, as of Wednesday tea time:
