David Concha made his Racing Santander debut just after turning seventeen in 2013, going on to help the club out of the third tier of Spanish football last season.

AS say that the young player’s parents were invited over by Newcastle United just before Christmas to check out the club and the city, also taking in the defeat to Sunderland on their trip.

The Spanish newspaper says that if agreement is reached then it is expected that Concha will be instantly loaned back to Racing Santander, as was the case with Karl Darlow and Jamaal Lascelles with Forest in the summer.
