Reports Of Newcastle Open Negotiations To Sign Portuguese Striker
It has been reported that Newcastle United have opened talks to sign twenty one year old striker, Amido Balde, from Vitoria Guimaraes.
The 6ft 4in striker has scored seven goals in twenty one appearances this season but is seen as more of a team player than out and out goalscorer..
Valencia are also credited with interest in the player but the reports in the Metro state that Newcastle have supposedly opened negotiations last weekend.
It is further claimed that this could be the start of an ongoing relationship between the two clubs with plans to develop and benefit their academies.
A figure of £5m has been mentioned which would be a very decent deal for the Portuguese club who picked him up on a free only last summer but he wouldn’t be the first young player not to make it at a big club initially.
