Another player linked with Newcastle United yesterday, in the Sunday papers, was Olympique Marseilles left full-back Taye Taiwo.
Taye Taiwo – 25 year-old Nigerian International
The 25 year-old Nigerian International looks a good player and has been at Marseilles since 2003, and played over 160 games for the French club with 3 goals.
The Sunday Sun was the paper reporting Newcastle’s interest yesterday and he seems to be of an age and talent that would interest the Newcastle United club.
The 6′ player is famous for his free-kicks, ands reports suggest he wants to leave Marseilles this summer.
The Lagos, Nigeria born player has already been linked with Europa Cup Champions, Atletico Madrid, although a move to the Premier League would be hard to turn down.
If this report is true, then presumably we would be brought in to challenge Spanish U21 International Jose Enrique, for the left-back position on Tyneside.
But we have no idea if there is any truth to this report.
