Sky Sports Reporting Zayette Will Sign For Newcastle


Setanta Sports is reporting tonight that BSC Young Boys defender Kamil Zayatte’s proposed move to Everton has stalled.

Kamil Zayette – 3 Premier Clubs interested

Kamil’s agent Roger Boli has also said that Newcastle United are keen on securing his services.

The 23 year-old Guinea international apparently impressed David Moyes during a trial at Everton.

However, his current Swiss club BSC Young Boys have already explained to the Merseyside club, there are three other English clubs showing an interest in the 23-year-old, and we know one of them is Newcastle.

It seems like the mad scramble that accompanies the closing of the transfer window has started, and agents are probably more involved than they should be, in working the best last minute deals for their clients.

Zayette has played for RC Lens and moved to BSC Young Boys in Switzerland only last summer. He is 6’3” tall and can play central defender, right back and defensive midfield, so it seems he could be a good capture for the squad, given his obvious versatility.

Zayatte wants to move to England and more developments are certainly expected very soon, and we could even know tomorrow the destination of the player.

Roger Boli told setantasports.com tonight:

“I don’t know what is happening at Everton, actually there might be a slight problem between David Moyes and his president regarding the signing, and I’m also aware of the fact that Newcastle want him as well,”

“I can’t tell with which club he is going to sign for the moment, but I may tomorrow.”

We believe the fee is in the region of £3M, and tonight Sky Sports is going further than Setanta Sports, and reporting that Zayatte is ready to sign for Newcastle United.

If this is indeed true, we would expect some news on this early tomorrow.

Comments welcome.

    With Everton’s big lack of signings, they will want the player more.

    Plus if we were to sign anybody for defence it would most likely be a left back.

    I see his already has a “ASPO” !
    – not sure we want him or need him?
    – never heard of him either.
    – but he is cheap so that means MA is interested then!!!!

    ” On August 28th 2008, Zayatte was spotted at Newcastle Airport doing keepy-uppies in front of the world press as he flew in to sign for Newcastle United F.C.. Unfortunatly, Zayatte fell over and broke his left leg forcing the deal to fall through. It’s thought Sunderland AFC are now chasing the crocked defender. They are thought to be ready to offer in the region of £32 for the player.

    The deal was revealed to be close to breakdown when Roy Keane discovered that he was neither Irish, nor a former player at Celtic or Manchester United. Keane was quoted as saying “I’m horrified, his agent told me he was Eric Djemba-Djemba, I’ve obviously been conned.”

    This must be the big WOW signing.

    Get in!!

    Joking (sort of), just because I’ve never heard of him doesn’t mean he isn’t any good.

    Don’t believe it…at least not yet.

    Check out his Wikipedia entry for a laugh (before they change it back):

    Before the 2005/06 season he was drafted into the first team of RC Lens.On the 26th of August, it was reported by numerous newspapers that Kamil was in Merseyside to agree to personal terms with Everton FC, the fee is around the region of 2,500,000 pounds.

    To be honest if we a sign a few players like this rather than money merchants I wont mind, mix that up with hopefully one very creative player and I will be happy, I think we have a good squad but do need some quality cover. Keep Milner or spend on a ACM and a ST Please Keegan!

    Ah no absoulutely nothing about him, so where is this WOW signing? We need a striker even more so than a midfeilder, where is the LB KK has been lookiing for? Only four more days to determine the 1st half of our season.

    Looking at the situation;
    We dont need a WOW signing the wow signing is Collocini. look how he has organised our defence.

    We should get 3 new good unknown players. look at Bassong no one knew him but we are all full of praise. If Zayatte is good for Everton he is good for us.

    Milner is going no where KK is going to sit him down and let him he will earn what he will fight for and by Jan if Ashley is satisfied ha will sign in Jan.

    Owen is going to sign in Sept.

    All we have to concetrate about is The arsena game, we have to get aresult and what I see is a win. If Milner doesnt play, we should bring in our bad boy Barton who will also do agood job. play 4-3-3.
    With Milner;
    …………………….Given
    Beye…….Taylor………..Colo……….Enrique
    Jonas……….Guthrie………Butt……….Zogs
    …………………..Milner……..Owen
    Without Milner;
    ……………………Given
    Beye………..Taylor………Colo……..Enrique
    …….Barton……….Butt………….Guthrie
    Jonas………………..Owen………………Zogs.

    When we get the result we need. The next game is Hull after two weeks and with our reserves we can get something at HOME. Then all the injuried players(Viduka,Duff,Martins) will be back for the next game and Barton will be sorted by then.

    Then let the season begin……………..

    While we are waiting for this unknown player, turn some attenition to Per Ciljan Skjelbred.
    In Rosenborgs 5-0 win against one of Swedens best team, he was voted man of the match.

    Thats amazing since old spurs striker Steffen Iversen bagged 3 goals…

    Get the lad now! Then bring a leftback, a striker and and a decent midfileder. God damn it! 3 more days until the window are closing.

    Toon lad, might be – you never know and thats the thing.

    Any chance of a midfielder or striker? Cause we is f*ckd in the up front section at the minute.

    MO looks to be taking a break from his sicknote, but the season is young.

    Lets hope that KK was bull shitting about Oba!!

    Going to be an intersting day tomorrow at press conference.
