This is our third report this morning, coming out of yesterday’s Sunday Sun, saying Newcastle are interested in a particular player.
Yohan Benalouane – 23 year-old Saint Etienne defender
This time it’s Saint Etienne center-half Yohan Benalouane who is reported to be interesting Newcastle United.
But we’d be a little surprised if Chris Hughton is really after another center-bac k, since we already have Coloccini, Williamson, Steven Taylor, Tamas Kadar and James Perch, who can all play in the center of defense.
One good thing about Benalouane is that he’s just 23 years old, so his best years are still in front of him, on the off chance this report is true.
The lad is of Tunisian descent, born in Bagnols-sur-Cèze, France, and he’s 6’1″ tall and has played 62 times for the French club with two goals, since he signed for them back in 2007.
