This is another in our series of pinpointing some talented young players in Europe, who could be targets either now or in the future for Newcastle United.
Simon Tibbling – Swedish U21 midfielder
Today we are highlighting Swedish U21 midfielder Simon Tibbling, who is just 18 years old and plays for Djurgardens IF in Stockholm, as a midfielder.
The Swedish youngster started his career at Grödinge SK in 1999 when he was 5 years old, and he moved to Brommapojkarna in 2005, and then to Djurgardens IF just two years ago, and made his debut in April last year coming on as a sub against Kalmar FF.
Simon has now played 36 times for the Djurgardens IF first team with one goal, and has played for all the Swedish Youth sides, including two appearances for the Swedish U21 side.
On his 18th birthday in September last year Tibbling, who stands 5’7″ tall, signed a first team contract that will keep him at the Stockholm club until 2016.
This lad seems to be a quickly improving youngster, and he doesn’t turn 19 until September.
Here’s some video of the youngster.
