Newcastle Linked With Young French Star

8 years ago

Newcastle United have been linked with another young French prospect.

Defensive midfielder El-Hadji Ba is of Senegalese descent and has just turned 20, currently playing for Le Havre who produced Paul Pogba who was at Manchester United and now Juventus.

Ba has represented France at Under 20 level and was linked to Tottenham last season.

After reported interest from Premier League clubs including Newcastle, the player has made clear where he’d like to see his near future;

“He (Pogba) is definitely the one for me to follow in his footsteps at the moment.

Pogba is doing very well and I’m happy for him to be playing for one of the best teams in the world, Juventus.

I want to improve and it’s very good to hear clubs have been scouting me.

I’d love to play in England one day and if teams have a good enough offer, then Le Havre will let me go”.

If Ba has got the necessary potential then we can be sure that he is on Graham Carr’s radar.
