News today that Newcastle may be interested in Birmingham’s midfielder Olivier Kapo.
Olivier Kapo – midfielder interesting Newcastle?
The France international played very well in his debut season in England with Birmingham City following his Â£3M move from Juventus last summer.
With Birmingham now being relegated, they know they will need to offload some of their players in the summer.
A number of clubs have already been linked with the 27-year-old, but the news is that Kevin Keegan, now he knows Birmingham will definitely be relegated, will beat the competition to the midfielder.
Newcastle are said to be willing to bid Â£5M for Olivier, and that would be difficult for the midlands club to turn down. In fact an offer may already have been lodged by the Tyneside club.
Olivier Kapo, full name Narcisse-Olivier Kapo-Obou was born in September 1980 in Abidjan, CÃ´te d’Ivoire.
He is a French international, Ivorian-born football player who has previously played at Auxerre and Juventus (then off to Monaco and Levanate on loan) and signed for Birmingham City last summer.
He appeared for Birmingham 26 times last season and scored 5 goals.
