Delle Alli – 18 year-old English midfielder

The midfielder made his debut for his home town club as a 16 year-old back in November of 2012, in a 0–0 draw with Cambridge City in the FA Cup,

Since then the 6’2″ attacking midfielder has played a total of 52 times for his club with 8 goals and 4 assists, and he has played 9 times for the England U17 side and twice for the England U18 side.

Alli only  turned 18 earlier this month, and the right footed player would be one for the future, and likely go straight into the Development squad.

And this again shows that Newcastle are after some home-based players this summer, and we could also see a number of Frenchmen  leave the club in the summer.

They could include Gabby Obertan, Sylvain Marveaux, Ben Arfa and of course Loic Remy will also be moving on.

Newcastle have also been linked with other Englishmen in the summer including Arsenal’s Carl Daniel Jenkinson, Blackpool’s Tom, Ince and Manchester United’s Wilfried Zaha and Danny Welbeck.
