Jukka Raitala is apparently on the verge of completing a move to Newcastle. It is understood that Joe Kinnear will be putting the finishing touches to a 500k GBP deal for the Finn.

Udinese and Ajax are both interested in the player, but Newcastle have won the race for the HJK Helsinki starlet.

Raitala plays for Finland's Under-21 side and is reportedly one of the country's finest young prospects.
