30 year-old Hull City striker Dame N’Doye has apparently been talking to Senegal International team-mate Papiss Cisse about a move to Newcastle, and it seems the Senegal striker could still make the switch to Tyneside this summer.
Dame N’Doye – in final game against Manchester United
The reports over the last few days have suggested he could make a move to the MLS and the LA Galaxy, but that seems extremely unlikely – one reason he’s still a bit young (and good) to make that move, and the other is that the LA club have already used their Designated Player slot with the signing of the great Steven Gerrard.
It’s almost certain that N’Doye will leave relegated Hull City this summer, and Premier League clubs interested in a player who scored 5 goals in 15 appearance for Hull City, are Aston Villa and Crystal Palace, as well as the Magpies.
The 26 times capped 6 ft tall Senegal International (6 goals) took a substantial pay cut to join Hull City in January from Locomotiv Moscow, so it would seem his wages would not be a problem for Newcastle, and we certainly need some strikers brought in over the summer months.
Our chances of signing Burnley’s Danny Ings are not good – with Liverpool and Spurs both interested in the free agent.
While at Moscow for three seasons Dame scored 27 goals in 68 appearances, and before that at Copenhagen for three seasons he hit 82 goals and had 34 assist in 150 total appearances.
