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.
