Monchengladbach confirm Nordtveit will depart for England


Borussia Monchengladbach have confirmed Havard Nordtveit will not continue with the club next season as he looks to make a move to the Premier League. 

Nordtveit, 25, spent three years at Arsenal between 2007 and 2010 but failed to make a senior appearance at the Emirates. 

The Norway international then signed on with Bundesliga outfit Monchengladbach, where he has gone on to make almost 180 appearances in all competitions across six seasons.  

However, with the defensive midfielder's contract expiring at the end of the season, Nordtveit is intent to make a return to England. 

West Ham are reportedly the front-runners to secure his signature, with both Liverpool and former club Arsenal said to be interested in his services.
