Newcastle signed Ayoze Perez in the summer for €2M, and the 21 year-old Spaniard has turned out be a terrific signing for Newcastle, so it’s not too surprising that Newcastle are after another Spanish younger – Racing Santander 18 year-old forward David Concha, who is a Spanish U-19 forward, who usually plays on the wing.
18 year-old winger David Concha – Racing Santander youngster
There’s news in Spain that Newcastle are hoping to tie up a deal to bring the youngster to Newcastle before the January transfer window closes next Monday.
David has played 24 times for the Santander first team with 3 goals and 3 assists, and he made his debut for Racing in December of 2013, when he had only just turned 17.
This season he has played 21 times for the club, scoring two goals, and he usually plays on the wing for the Spanish side.
So it seems that Newcastle will only bring in some top youngsters in this January transfer window, and no players to help the first team squad through the end of the season.
The deal is what we did with Karl Darlow and Jamaal Lascelles of Nottingham Forest last summer, and we will loan David back to Racing Santander in Spain’s second division for the rest of the season.
Racing Santandar are currently fourth bottom of the Spanish second division and in real danger of being relegated.
It seems that Newcastle are now scouting heavily in both Spain and Germany – and we could see players coming in from both countries over the summer.
Apparently Concha has already visited St James’ Park this season, and he was at the derby game against Sunderland, when we lost to a last minute goal from Adam Johnson.
And apparently Newcastle have other Spanish youngsters on their radar who can Newcastle in the future.
17 year-old Jorge Mere – of Sporting Gijon
Another Spanish player we are reported to be interested in is Spanish U19 International center-back Jorge Mere of Sporting Gijon, who turns 18 in April, and the news is that we are also trying to get a deal done to bring him to Newcastle this month too, and we will immediately loan him back to Sporting Gijon for the rest of the season.
As we have reported in the last day or two, it looks like we may have completed a deal to bring 18 year-old MK Dons midfielder Dele Alli to Newcastle for around £4M, and then loan him back to MK Dons for the rest of the season.
