Newcastle Bid Accepted For Defender

8 years ago

It is reported this morning that Newcastle have had a bid accepted for one of their defensive targets, with personal terms still to be sorted.

Earlier this week it was announced that United had bid around £2.5m for Nancy’s left-back, Massadio Haidara, and today L’Equipe are reporting that the French club have accepted Newcastle’s offer.

Nancy are rock bottom of Ligue1 and may be looking to cash in on their better players in advance of relegation, though the player may have his eyes elsewhere with the twenty year old left-back having the following attributed to him in recent days;

“I prefer Roma to Newcastle, as I prefer Serie A. I’d love to play in Italy, though Newcastle are also a good team. I know that my agent has spoken to both clubs, we’ll see what happens. As far as I’m concerned, I’d love to play in Italy”.

I suppose at least he hasn’t said that he’d prefer to play for QPR…yet!
