The Toon star is keen to move on and has a host of clubs vying to sign him in a cut-price deal from St James's Park

Yasin Ben El-Mhanni is set to leave Newcastle United this summer, Goal understands.

There is no shortage of suitors for the winger, with Besiktas, Sporting CP, Bordeaux and Feyenoord among the clubs interested from across the continent.

Closer to home, the 22-year-old, who is seeking to leave after complaining of bullying on Tyneside, has caught the eye of Leicester City, Wolves, Leeds United and Swansea City, who could sign him on a free transfer.

An independent panel at Newcastle found that El-Mhanni was 'unfairly treated' after the winger made an official complaint against Newcastle Under-23 coach Peter Beardsley over bullying and discrimination in January.

El-Mhanni had previously trials with a number of Premier League clubs, including Chelsea, but he joined Newcastle, who were then in the Championship, in July 2016.

He made his debut in the FA Cup third round win over Birmingham in January 2017 and also featured in the next round against Oxford United. However, he didn't play in Newcastle's first team last season.
