Premier League transfer news: Thomas Frank has dropped a big hint over Ivan Toney’s future at Brentford as Brighton ‘agree’ deal for exciting winger.

Here, we round-up all the latest stories that have emerged surrounding Newcastle United and beyond:

Thomas Frank makes honest Ivan Toney admission

Thomas Frank has conceded that Ivan Toney is likely to leave Brentford when the summer transfer window opens. Toney, who has just returned to action after being suspended from football for breaching the Football Association’s betting rules, has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent times and Frank believes it will be very difficult for the Bees to keep hold of him this summer, despite not receiving any bids for him during the winter window.

Speaking to Danish media, via Tipsbladet, Frank said: “It is relatively obvious that Ivan Toney will probably be sold this summer. We also know what he is worth. I don’t think there are many strikers in the world who are better than him right now.

“He is a really skilled striker who is in his prime football age. Personally, as a coach, I would prefer to keep Toney but one day it could be fun to see him on a top team. This winter we actually had no offers for him, but it will surprise me if there aren’t a lot of clubs that will be interested in him.”

Newcastle United have previously been credited with an interest in re-signing their former striker. However, it’s likely that the Magpies will be priced-out of a move for Toney unless they offload one of their star players this summer.

Brighton ‘close in’ on exciting winger 

Brighton and Hove Albion have agreed a deal with Danish side FC Nordsjaelland winger to sign exciting winger Ibrahim Osman. The 19-year-old will move to the Amex Stadium when the summer transfer window opens with the Seagulls having parted with an initial €19.5m to sign the teenager with the fee potentially rising by another €3m in add-ons - according to Fabrizio Romano.

Osman has scored four goals and registered five assists for his club this season and has played regularly in their UEFA Europa Conference League. Osman will sign a five-year deal at Brighton with FC Nordsjaelland due 10% of his next transfer - should he be sold by Brighton in the future.
