Eren Derdiyok – 20 year old impressive Swiss Striker
The Sunday Sun today is reporting that Newcastle have indeed opened talks over a move for Swiss starlet 6’3″ Eren Derdiyok.
Newcastle management apparently first met with representatives of the 20-year-old FC Basel striker in London last week.
After positive mutualÂ discussions over the move, the next thing is for the Tyneside club to move in with a suitable offer, and hopefully capture the youngest player in the Euro 2008 championships. Eren just turned 20 on June 12th.
We know from previous comments from the player that he would be delighted to join Newcastle.
This is good news for Newcastle fans, because judging the comments on this site, most fans believe Eren would be a great buy for the club.
He certainly looked a great young player in the making during the Euro 2008 games.
Derdiyok parents are Turkish, and he is also said to be attracting interest from both Besiktas and Fenerbahce in Turkey.
But neither of these clubs are thought to be able to match the compensation package Newcastle can offer the youngster.
If we can captureÂ young Eren next week, before pre-training starts the following Monday, that would be an excellent start to our summer’s transfer business.
We think Eren could be a great buy for the club, and he’s certainly seems to want to come to play for the Magpies, and that’s always good.
