We reported a couple of days ago that there were reports in France that Toulouse left back Herita Ilunga is a target for Newcastle United.
Herita Ilunga - wish is to play imn Premier League
And since then, the Toulouse defender Ilunga has told skysports.com that he would love the chance to play in England.
We still need a left back, and we’re not going to get Nicky Shorey, who moved to Aston Villa yesterday.
Ilunga would come at a fairlyÂ low price, estimated to be around Â£2M, and he would probably be a squad player, and would need to fight it out with youngster Enrique for the left back starting position.
But if Herita is anything like the other Africans we have at the moment at Newcastle, he’ll be worth getting.
Ilunga told skysports.com.
“Toulouse understand my wish,” “It is to play in the Premiership, to play in the best league is everyone’s dream.”
“I also need to think about my family, I have to provide for them like all Africans do when they make it.”
“However, I want to leave in good spirits with their blessing, so hopefully they are talking and it will be fine, I think.”
“I never cause trouble so my bosses will understand.”
Once we get this Coloccini marathon transfer completed, the next player in should probably be a left back, although reports are saying that young Swiss striker Eren DerdiyokÂ could be the next one through the door.
That would be OK with us.
