Another youngster has spoken of his desire to move to Tyneside.

Norwegian prospect Sebastian Sørlie Henriksen has opened up on his hopes to secure a move to Newcastle United.

The Viking FK centre-back has made just one appearance for his parent club and is currently on loan with third-tier side Egersund until the end of the year.

Henriksen has made 15 appearances in all competitions for his temporary employers and has earned international caps at several youth levels for Norway.

He is currently in the the final months of his contract with Viking and sporting director Erik Nevland has recently confirmed no decision has been taken over his future.

Norwegian newspaper Aftenbladet has spoken to the youngster and he revealed his ‘big dream’ would be to secure a move to Tyneside during his career.

Despite Henriksen’s comment, there is no indication of any interest from the Magpies as they look to continue boosting their academy ranks.

United made a number of additions to their Under-23s side this summer with Kilmarnock defender Charlie McArthur, Galway United full-back Alex Murphy, East Fife goalkeeper Jude Smith and former Tottenham Hotspur youngster Jordan Hackett all arriving.

Recent reports have also suggested United are close to signing Australian prospect Garang Kuol.

Sources down under have stated the 16-year-old will join the Magpies but will remain with Central Coast Mariners until January.

He will then make the move to Tyneside before being immediately loaned out to a club in Europe.
