The Sun are reporting today that Newcastle United are close to signing Kamil Zayatte from Hull City for £1.6M.
Kamil Zayatte – are Newcastle interested?
Newcastle manager Chris Hughton is said to want the Guinea center-back, who is now 25, and had a trial at both Everton and Newcastle two years ago, but eventually signed for Hull City on a three year deal in January of 2009.
With Hull being relegated last season, the Humberside club are anxious to reduce their wage bill, and would like to unload their 21 times capped Guinea International, who has played over 60 times at Hull.
This story has been around a little while now, and we’re not sure what to make of it – but at just £1.6M we have to think the 6’1″ defender, who can also play in defensive midfield, would be a decent buy for Newcastle.
What do you think?
