Are Newcastle After Jean-Eudes Maurice – We Hope Not

There is a report out today that Newcastle may be interested in PSG’s 24 year-old forward Jean-Eudes Maurice.

Jean-Eudes Maurice – Newcastle interested?

The Alfortville-born forward has played precious few times for PSG, and last season made only 3 starts, but had 20 additional appearances for PSG as a substitute, but with just a single goal.

With that record we find it hard to believe that Newcastle would be after this player, who is also said to be interesting Stoke City and Spanish clubs, Espanyol and Malaga.

Newcastle have been reported to be interested in his team-mate Mevlut Erdinc, but maybe Newcastle are really after Maurice?

We have a very hard job believing this story and surely Newcastle will be after more seasoned professionals than this 24 year-old – who may be a decent player – but not suited to what Newcastle need and want before the end of the month.

Comments welcome.
