Newcastle Interest In Slovakian Centre-Back
Hubocan’s agent, Michel Holescak, said of the Slovakian international;
“Newcastle and Spurs are interested in him but we’ve had contacts with Inter and Napoli too.
Tomas is a top defender and a player for big European teams. However he is happy in Spalletti’s (Zenit’s manager) team and focussed on the Europa League and Russian Premier League”.
Hubocan has impressed in matches such as when the Russian team knocked out Liverpool recently in the Europa League.
However, the centre-back turns 28 in September and with Russian teams such as Zenit paying big wages these days, it would be a bit of a departure from Newcastle’s recent transfer strategy.
Also, the agent went on to say that the player is happy at Zenit anyway, though he would say that regardless of whatever the player really wants.
