In a report in the Evening Standard, Newcastle are said to be keen on signing Olympiacos defensive midfielder Mady Camara. Could this be the replacement for want-away Isaac Hayden?
Mady Camara – Promising young Guinean international
Mady Camara only just joined Olympiacos from AJ Ajaccio in the summer. He left the Corsican club on free to join the Greek giants.
He has impressed thus far in the Greek Super League making 36 total appearances with an impressive six goals.
Camara recently received a new contract at Olympiacos after just six months at the club. His current deal runs through 2023.
The report does go on to say that Watford is also interested in this player and that would be his preferred destination.
However, a move to Newcastle United to play under Rafa Benitez could certainly be a draw.
With the possibility of three midfielders leaving this summer, he fits the type of player Newcastle will be tracking.
Camaa just turned 22 in February and could greatly improve in the Premier League.
Olympiakos having just agreed on improved terms with Camara and will desperately try to hold on to him.
The pull of the Premier League will be tempting to the Guinean.
We will keep an eye on this player as we like the look of him.
