Forward Linked With Newcastle Instead Travels To London For Talks
Amongst the many players Newcastle have been linked with, it looks as though highly rated young striker Paul-Georges Ntep will be heading elsewhere.
The 21 year old Auxerre forward scored at the weekend before getting on the Eurostar and travelling to London – as yet no reports of him dashing across the capital to make his connection at Kings Cross…
A transfer fee of around 6m Euros has been speculated and while Ntep has scored seven goals in seventeen league appearances this season, that has been in France’s Ligue 2 – a long way off the standard he would face in the Premier League.
Obviously a young relatively unknown quantity playing at a lower level in France would potentially have all the hallmarks of a Newcastle/Graham Carr signing, but with so many other clubs linked as well then you can’t see United getting into any kind of bidding war.
