With the news in the last couple of days that Tottenham were the favored club to sign Sporting Lisbon’s Yannick Djalo, Harry Redknapp has today said the London club are not interested in the 24 year-old.
Yannick Djalo – are Newcastle after this player?
Djalo’s agent had said that Tottenham were the favored club to sign the 24 year-old Sporting Lisbon forward, who can play as a striker or out on the wing.
That’s what he wished would have happened.
Harry Redknapp denied Spurs had any interest in the forward by saying:
“It’s not true. He’s a good player but he’s never been in our plans.”
So with Tottenham not even interested in the player, the question becomes are Newcastle after signing this lad for around £4M?
Djalo has been at Sporting Lisbon since 1997, and has appeared 74 times with 17 goals for the Spanish club, and has played for all the Portugal youth sides through Portugal U21 and Portugal B sides.
He was also on loan to Casa Pia from 2005-2006 and appeared there 26 times with 16 goals for the Lisbon-based club.
If Newcastle are interested then the way would seem clear to get this player on Tyneside.
