Newcastle are being linked with Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Bakary Sako, whose contract at Molineux runs out at the end of the season, and he will become a free agent at the end of June.
26 year-old Bakary Sako – free agent in summer
The 14 times capped Mali International is in big demand with Aston Villa, West Brom, Sunderland and Stoke City said to be the other Premier League clubs interested in signing him.
Wolves are still hoping they can sign the 26 year-old to sign an extended contract to stay at the club, but they will need to win promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs if the Championship club are to hold onto their star winger.
Wolves are currently in 8th place in the Championship and 3 points out of a play-off place.
Sako stands six foot tall and joined Wolves in the summer of 2012 from St. Etienne in France, after he had played 10 times for the France U21 side, and Newcastle were reportedly interested in singing Sako in the summer of 2013.
Paris-born Sako is a goal-scoring winger and has scored 14 goals in 39 total appearances for Wolves this season, and in total he has appeared 122 times for Wolves with 37 goals and 33 assists over almost three seasons.
