Outlet Soccer Link, who have very good links to Ligue 1 side Amiens, are reporting that the club in question have rejected an opening bid from Premier League side Newcastle United worth €5m for 24-year-old versatile Swedish right-sided defender Emil Krafth.

Steve Bruce is understood to want the player because of his versatility and his strength in duels, and wants to close a deal rapidly.
