Newcastle Battle PSG And Sampdoria For Turkish Midfielder


There’s a report in Italy in Tutto Mercato Web (TMW), that Newcastle are in a battle with both Paris Saint-Germain and Sampdoria for the signature of 20 year-old Turkish midfielder Taylan Antalyali.

It seems the Turkish U19 central midfielder is getting a lot of attention, and he can play in either an attacking role or as the holding midfielder in the center of the park.

Taylan Antalyali – 20 year-old Turkish U19 midfielder

He is one of the young players Newcastle want to bring in this summer, and he will probably be one for the future, but if he’s good enough he will get his chance in Steve McClaren’s side next season.

Antalyali made his professional debut back in May, 2012 for Bursaspor against Kasimpasa, Istanbul as a 17 year-old and he played a total of 41 games for them with one goal.

The youngster joined Genclerbirligi Ankara from Bursaspor only last summer, and he has attracted the interest of clubs including Newcastle.

He is up for sale for about £1M with his contract at Genclerbirligi running through the summer of 2018.

As we said,  Newcastle will continue to bring in these younger players who look good at their age, and we’ll see if Newcastle can be successful in bringing Taylan to Tyneside this summer.

Comments welcome.

    Ah its just like old times – Ed mis-spelling Newcastle. In other news, are we supposed to believe SM is building an entire team of midfielders?

    Tutto Mercato Web – Sounds a lot more interesting than “The Chronicle”.

    Similarly “Genclerbirligi Ankara” is a cracking name too. I’m not sure about a chant though?

    Any suggestions?

    Ed, you have been fooled by a Mirror article in regards to a FIFA investigation into his age!!! The CNN article that you and the mirror quote is from 2013, entitled ‘ Football’s age fraud: FIFA probes player with four birthdays.’

    The Mirror just discovered the story and mistook the investigation as ongoing – the official conclusion of the investigation was to conclude that his birth year was ‘most likely’ 1994.

    Belfast the ruins of OV are still smouldering. Going to take more than a kitchen fitter, a failed irish prophet, an expat loafer and a prison warder to fix that place up. 😀

    With any luck ill wake up to find out our team is one step closer to the end game… Very unlikely i know but ive been watching shaqiri and i think if we got him signed that shows intent hes a big name and it will let everyone in the league we are coming back pulling us beyond the swanseas stoke everton to show we are one of the big boys,… While we have signed good players we need another cb(including mbemba)maybe a striker… We need the marquee signing which sends shockwaves through the league to show we mean business

    Footballs coming soon and i feel like a kid on Christmas morning HWTL

    I think there are questions about Shaqiri’s and Thauvin’s, for that matter, character. Getting the right person, as well as the right player, in the dressing room seems important(liked SMc’s ‘in with the family’ phrase). That said, I remember thinking the same about Ronaldo when ManU signed him, in fact I still think the same about Ronaldo, ie that he’s a wrong un! So perhaps it doesn’t matter.

    We need another centre back. Won’t be too bothered if Austin doesn’t come.

    Hope we sign another winger to replace the useless cabella. Aarons has probably made his name on the left mid his

    We’ve signed three marquee players, now our scouts can take it easy; vist some L. American nations, enjoy a few mojitos while asking the locals about good young players.

    If one of these ‘maybes’ is as good as Perez, I’m happy.

    BTW, there was a twitter debate whether Perez should be in the stating 11. My answer is: Yes. Still, I don’t think we should have a starting 11, there should be 18 people regularly playing.
