HLN are reporting that Club Brugge winger Anthony Limbombe has been told to train alone and away from the first team squad with Newcastle reported interested in signing the once-capped Belgian International.
Two other players, Lior Refaelov and Abdoulay Diaby, are also training alone in the anticipation they will also be transferred.
The report says that Newcastle are interested in signing 24-year-old Anthony Limbombe but that the transfer window in England has only eight days to run before it slams shut on August 9th.
So Club Brugge are hoping that a solution will come soon.
Club Brugge winger Anthony Limbombe – Newcastle still interested?
Club Brugge coach Ivan Leko has known for a long time that he can no longer count on those three players for the coming season so he is training the squad without them.
But it doesn’t seem that a winger is one of Rafa Benitez’ high priorities in the final eight days of the window – since we still need a striker, left back and center-back brought in and possibly a new number 10.
And if the manager is really after Limbombe we would expect he would want to sell one of the existing wingers – maybe Christian Atsu.
But the reports that Huddersfield Town were interested in signing the Ghanaian International earlier in the week turned out to be false.
We would be very surprised if we see Limbombe in Newcastle colors this year.
