There are reports coming out of France that Newcastle are interested in signing 20 year-old French defender Yarouba Cissako of Monaco – who is on loan for the season at S.V. Zulte Waregem in the Belgian Pro League.
Yarouba Cissako – 20 year-old Monaco right back on loan in Belgium
Yarouba has played for the France U16, U17 and U19 teams and is an up-and-coming player, who joined Monaco’s Youth Academy back in 2010 when he was 14, and he has been sent out on loan this season.
There’s usually a good reason Newcastle are interested in a youngster apart from him being good, and sure enough his contract at Monaco runs out in the summer.
At that time he will become a free agent, although Newcastle would still have to pay his French club compensation, since he’s under 24.
This season he’s played 27 times on loan at S.V. Zulte Waregem with one goal and seven assists.
He stands 5’9″ tall, right footed and he’s the type of player Newcastle like to sign.
While he will probably be expected to go into the Development squad for next season, if we sign him, young Ayoze Perez has proved you can become a first team player at Newcastle immediately if you are good enough.
Hopefully we will be bringing in some good player for both the first team and the Development squad in the summer – we’ve certainly have the money available.
