Newcastle Linked With Belgium Free-Agent Full Back

Sky Sports is reporting today that Belgium U23 International Landry Mulemo is being chased by a number of English clubs, including Newcastle United.

Landry Mulemo – a Newcastle target?

The 23-year-old DR Congo-born full-back is a free agent this summer and looks set to move from Standard Liege, his home-town club.

Belgian champions Anderlecht are after the player who turns 24 in September, but there are also many clubs in England that appear to be interested.

In addition to Newcastle, clubs interested are said to be West Ham, West Brom, Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest and Leicester City, and are all showing some interest in the former Belgium Under-21 and current Under-23 international.

Landry has played 51 times for Standard Leige, and was on loan at Sint-Truidense from 2004-2007 where he played 65 times for the Belgium club.

He stands 5’10” and his parents are from Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo..

Another player Newcastle may or may not be interested in signing this summer

    It strikes me that most clubs could save a fortune on scouting costs, by getting rid of them, reading the blog, and then hitting youtube for any footage? Sounds a bit Denis Wise, but still?

    Are Sky Sports setting up as accredited Bosman agents?

    His position is left back and so could be cover for Enrique? But Kadar can play there too. He is young and has international experience but could either be an agent pushing his CV or Sky going for sports page fillers. The bonnet looks OK and his photos on Wiki make him look a toughie!

    I’m from Belgium and I’ve heard nor read anything about Mulemo being a target for EPL clubs.

    If so I hope NUFC will be that smart to go for someone else cause he is not good enough to play in the EPL. He struggles to get into an average Standard lineup (the past season Standard was so bad).
