On the final day of the January transfer window there was news that Newcastle were trying to bring in a full back come winger in 25 year-old Evian player Daniel Wass, who can play in either full back position and also out on the right wing.
Daniel Wass – pretty in pink – Evian’s home colors
Daniel is a very versatile player and can play in either full-back position or on the right wing, but this lad can score goals and that’s the major thing that comes through in his record.
This season Daniel has scored 10 goals in 25 total appearances for Evian in all competitions and he also has 3 assists – so he has as many goals as Papiss Cisse our top scorer, which isn’t too bad.
And in the 30 months he’s been with the French club, since he moved from Benfica he’s played 136 times with 27 and 12 assists.
Evian are struggling this season against relegation and are 3rd bottom of the French league with 26 points from their 25 games, and they are currently a couple of points form safety.
If Evian are relegated Newcastle could potentially move in and get a decent deal for the 11 times Danish International who has played 44 times for various Danish Youth sides, including 14 times at the U21 level.
One of the things Newcastle will be looking for this summer are players who can score and create goals and Daniel seems one of them.
Newcastle have scored only 31 goals in their 25 Premier league games this season.
In his career so far, Wass has played 238 first team games with 38 goals and 19 assists, and he started his senior career at Danish club Brondby.
It would seem he could be a good deal for us in the summer, and would help to replace Davide Santon, who is expected to sign full time for his former club Inter-Milan at the end of the season.
Wass cost £2M from Benfica when he was signed by Evian in June of 2012, after spending a season on loan with the French club, and his transfer fee to Newcastle probably wouldn’t be too much more than that.
