We reported yesterday on the Sun story that Loris Benito is in England to seal a possible free transfer to a Premier League club.
Benito has been linked with Newcastle several times recently.
And it seems he is indeed heading to Newcastle as the Sun reports that Newcastle seem to have won the race to sign the 27-year-old fullback who has played twice for Switzerland.
The report is that he has flown to London and they think he on his way to sign for Newcastle as a free agent.
Benito joined Yong Boys back in 2015 and since then he has made 84 appearances for the Swiss club with 2 goals and 11 assists: last season made 42 appearances with one goal and 6 assists.
Loris Beniio – waves goodbye to fans after helping Young Bys wint the Super League
So last season was by far his best and he helped BSC Young Boys win the Swiss Super League by a massive 20 points from FC Basel.
They won 29 of their 36 league games.
Benito is left-footed and plays at left back and he seems to be a very decent buy as a free agent.
He will challenge Paul Dummett for the left-back starting position at Newcastle.
If he is signing for Newcastle we should hear something in the next day or two as takes his medical at the club.
What do you think?
