Newcastle goalkeeper Matz Sels is in France to finalise a £3.5m move to Ligue 1 club Strasbourg, according to Sky sources.

The Belgian international could complete his move to the newly-promoted French side on Wednesday.

Sels spent last season on loan at Anderlecht after falling down the pecking order at Newcastle. He is now fourth choice behind Martin Dubravka, Karl Darlow and Rob Elliot.

Rafa Benitez signed the 26-year-old from Belgian side Gent two years ago for around £6m.

He was on standby to go to the World Cup with Belgium, who achieved an historic third place finish, but just missed the cut.
