Paris Saint Germain star Amara Diane has told Sky Sports that he doesn’t want to be transferred to another French club.
Amare Diane – wants a move away from France
Diane is just one of the 237 players Newcastle are said to have been interested in this summer. 😀
Sky Sports is reporting that Diane really wants to move abroad and take on a new challenge.
Diane has been linked with a move to Rennes as part of a possible deal, which would take Jimmy Briand to Paris, but it seems the Ivory Coast player isn’t too keen on that idea by his club PSG.
Diane, who’s 5’11”, has been linked with a move to England with Newcastle United and says he does not want to leave PSG for another French Ligue 1 side.
Diane told skysports.com when asked about a possible move to Rennes yesterday:
“I won’t go full stop,” “If I have to leave PSG, it is to move abroad.”
“I want to stay with the club, however if they don’t need me they are not going to transfer me where I don’t want to go.“
“I have contact abroad, in a top league but they won’t transfer me to Rennes.”
We were linked with Diane in mid-May and at that time the 25-year-old forward talked about how great it would be if if he could move to Newcastle United.
Amara told Sky Sports on 13th May:
“Kevin Keegan is a dream coach, his team always plays offensive football and playing in England would be a great opportunity,”
“I know there is some contact between the two clubs and if an agreement is reached, I will go to Newcastle.”
“To play with Michael Owen would be great and there is also Obafemi Martins who is a top striker.”
“The Premier League is attractive and some of my Ivorian friends are there so I would be in good company.”
It’s nice to hear that from one of our targets – and don’t believe all you hear about players not wanting to come to Newcastle and play for Kevin Keegan.
Amara has played 44 times for PSG since 2006 and scored 7 goals, and played a couple of times for the Ivory Coast.Â We wonder if he’s good enough for Newcastle.
We’re really not sure if Newcastle are interested in the player, but with Keegan returning from holiday this week, we expect the club to start launching serious bids for their targets soon.
We’ll just have to wait and see if Diane is one of them.
