News is coming through that Newcastle have put in a firm bid for 20 year-old Nancy left-back Massadio Haidara, who has been capped twice at the France U21 level.
Massadio Haidera – Newcastle talking terms with 20 year-old
And it seems the bid of around £2.5M may have been accepted by Nancy, because Newcastle are now said to be in discussions with the 5’10” tall player, and his agent.
It seems that if personal terms can be agreed with player, he could be joining the club this week, but it’s thought he would be under-study to Davide Santon initially, although Newcastle will hope this lad improves quickly once he arrives at the club.
The player has played 33 times for Nancy and the Trappes born youngster has been capped at the French U19, U20 and U21 levels, and it seems we were first linked with Massadio about a week ago.
If we have any French readers who have watched this layer – let us know what he’s like.
Spurs, Aston Villa and Fiorentina are also being linked with the 20 year-old.
Here’s some footage of the player – compliments of reader 89Norcal
