Newcastle Maintain Interest in Greek Star


Newcastle United have watched Greek wingback or defender Vasilis Torosidis several times since January of this year.

Vasilis Torosidis – promising young Greek wingback

This must be the 5th player we have been linked with, and that’s just for today. 😀

Anyway, we will track all players we are said to be interested in over the summer, and then see who exactly we end up with, but take the stories with a pinch of salt.

However this lad looks good, and this is not the first time we’ve reported Newcastle’s interest in the player.

The 22-year-old Greek International has also impressed Ibrox manager Walter Smith but Olympiakos are said to want £4M before they will allow him to leave.

Although other clubs are tracking the youngster, Newcastle are said to be favorites to get Torosidis and he seems to be the type the Tyneside club are after, as he will only improve as he gets older.

The 11-times capped player who stands 6’2” tall will play alongside former Rangers defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos for the Greek national team at the European 2008 Championships this summer.

The 22 year old is rated highly in Greece as an attacking full-back, and the boy has put in some excellent performances this season for Olympiakos.

His form this season has alerted a number of clubs with scouts from Juventus, Monaco, and Atletico Madrid also allegedly at the Karaiskaki Stadium this season to watch Torosidis.

Here is Vasilis’ playing record so far:

Years 	   Club 	   App Goals

2002-2006  Skoda Xanthi     76   3
2006-      Olympiacos CFP   31   2
2007- 	   Greece 	    11   0

Comments very welcome.

    That’s 16.5 million EUROS for Turan, remember it was Turks going on about it, and they use Euros. Can’t be bothered to work it out, but it would be around 13 million pounds probably…

    hopefully there will be a change to the exchange rate soon and we will get more value for our money (not sure its not going to get worse though)
