The Sunday Sun is reporting today that Newcastle are still interested in signing 18 year-old 6′ 2¨tall MK Dons central midfielder Bamidele Jermaine Alli, better known as Dele Alli.
Dele Alli – impressive MK Dons midfielder
Newcastle were first linked with this player at the beginning of the year, and the news is that the Tyneside club want to sign the Milton Keynes born youngster in the summer.
Dele has played for the England U17 side 9 times, twice for the U18 side and four times for the U19s, and the plan would be that he would initially be part of the Development squad.
The midfielder joined his home town club as an 11 year-old back in 2007, and he made his debut for the first team as a 16 year-old 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 62 times for his club with 15 goals, and this season he seems to be in excellent form with 8 goals in 18 appearances.
Alli only turned 18 in April, and the right-footed player would be one for the future, but that’s what Ayoze Perez was, when he signed for us in the summer from Tenerife.
And Ayoze this season has proved that at Newcastle, if you are good enough, you will be given a chance in the first team.
That’s what’s happened to Ayoze this season, and he’s grabbed the chance with both feet – and the lad even talk with a Geordie accent – he’s that good. 😀
Alli extended his contract last September at the MK Dons to June of 2017, so Newcastle would need to pay out some money for the youngster – exactly how much we don’t know – but he already looks a skillful and composed player.
Deli Alli is exactly the type of young up-and-coming player Newcastle should be signing, and here’s some video of the teenager.
