There’s report out today that newcatsle are working hard to close the deal for PSG Turkish striker Mevlut Erdinc.
Mevlut Erdinc – PSG’s Turkish striker
There was a high level meeting at Newcastle on transfer son Tuesday and we would expect some movement to be made for certain targets this week, so we have to hope this news is true.
Erdinc’s agent came out earlier this week and said any player in France would love to sign for Newcastle, so that was good news, although one barrier could be the £10M price tag the French club have placed on their 24 year-old striker
The reports are that Newcastle feel that Erdinc’s style of play would complement that of new Senegal striker Demba Ba, a free agent who was signed by Newcastle United last Friday.
The Turkish international has had an excellent season in France for PSG, and in the last two seasons since signing from Sochaux in the summer of 2009, the Turkish International has played 70 times for PSG with 28 goals.
Newcastle are a highly regarded club in France, and reports there today suggest that Newcastle are in the lead for the Turkish striker, and a deal could be announced within the next few days.
We hope so.
