The 23-year-old was linked with a move to Tyneside last summer, but that went no further than having a scout watch him in a pre-season friendly.

Malmo's CEO Pelle Svensson: "If Newcastle are interested in Ofere then it's just for them to contact us but they need to hurry up as the transfer window closes soon.

"We haven't heard anything yet. But we are ready for an offer on Ofere.

"No club has contacted us since the last season ended, but of course we are prepared. We need to be with a player like Ofere.

"Of course we have a plan if Ofere would leave. We need to have."
