Speculation is mounting today that Newcastle United are trying to secure the services of Fiorentina’s Marco Donadel, as we reported last night.
Marco Donadel – will he elect to move to Newcastle?
There was news coming out of Italy yesterday that Newcastle had bid around £4.5M for midfielder Donadel.
Setanta Sports is now reporting that his club Fiorentina will not stop the player moving to , if he opts to make the switch to The Premier League.
That to us sounds like the £4.5M bid has been accepted by his club, and presumably it is now up to the player.
Of course Joe Kinnear and the Newcastle Board are working desperately this week to improve the Newcastle squad ir squad for the final 16 game run-in to the Premier League.
Setanta are reporting that Parma and Genoa are offering Donadel the opportunity to remain in Italy, but developments are expected shortly after Newcastle have already lodged an official bid for the player yesterday.
Donadel’s agent Davide Lippi recently confirmed that his player had several suitors, including some from abroad, as the 25-year-old attempts to enhance his career.
The player arriving at Newcastle now seems a decent possibility, because he will get improved terms on Tyneside, but of course quite a number of Italian players elect to stay in their homeland.
