Nordtveit set for England move

Mönchengladbach have revealed midfielder Havard Nordtveit will not extend his contract at the club and will more to the Premier League next season.

It will not be the 25-year-old’s first foray into England after he moved to die Fohlen in 2010 after three unsuccessful seasons with Arsenal in which he failed to make a single first team appearance.

The Norway international restored his reputation at Mönchengladbach, becoming a vital part of their midfield, making 164 appearances and scoring 12 goals in his five years at the club.

However, Nordtveit’s contract expires at the end of this season and, amid increasing interest from club’s in the Premier League, die Fohlen have been unable to convince him to sign a new deal.

“Havard Nordtveit has opted not to extend his contract and will move to England in the summer,” Monchengladbach posted on their official Twitter account.

Arsenal are reportedly interested in giving the midfielder another shot at the Emirates, while Liverpool are also rumoured to be interested in him, but it is West Ham United that are believed to be leading the chase for his signature at this stage.
