According to Estadio Deportivo Newcastle are after Sevilla defender Juan Cala, and talks between the player and Sevilla for a new contract are at an impasse.
Juan Cala – Newcastle interested
The 24-year-old 6’2″ center-back becomes a free agent in the summer, and the club and player are unable to come to an agreement on a new contract, and Estadio Deportivo are reporting today that talks between the club and player have broken down.
The player has been at his home town club Sevilla since 2000, and has played for the Spanish U19 side once, so he is not a full Spanish International.
He has had loan spells at both Cartagena and at AEK Athens, and he has played 111 times for the Spanish club and scored eleven goals.
Cala has 19 appearances and one goal this season, but we wonder if the player is good enough for Newcastle?
We can only assume that Graham Carr has picked him out as a player who could do a job at Newcastle, who are always well aware of players contracts running out – so they can bring players in as free agents on Tyneside.
French club Toulouse and Belgian club Anderlecht are two other clubs said to be interested in signing the right-footed player.
