Antonio Rudiger Linked With Newcastle Transfer

8 years ago

The latest name to be linked with a move to St.James’ Park is Antonio Rudiger.

The 21 year old central defender has become a first choice regular for Stuttgart over the last 18 months.

The Under 21 German international has failed to make the World Cup squad but has been called up for the forthcoming friendly with Poland, along with other promising young players.

Sky are reporting that Newcastle are interested in the player and could make a move this summer for a defender who is contracted for another 3 years at the Bundesliga club.

While Newcastle’s defence definitely is in need of extra quality with 59 conceded in 38 league matches this campaign, hopefully if Rudiger does sign then he will show that he is individually better than Stuttgart’s overall defensive record this season.

Conceding 62 goals only 34 Bundesliga matches, only four other clubs had a worse defensive record than Stuttgart, the German club lucky to stay up as they finished fourth bottom in the table.
