Report – Newcastle Back In For La Liga Defensive Midfielder


Estadio Deportivo are reporting that Newcastle still have an interest in Sevilla midfielder Ibrahim Amadou. There was a report in January that Newcastle were looking for a loan move for the defensive midfielder.

Amadou is a 26-year-old former French U19 international who just joined Sevilla from Lille in a €14m deal last summer. He did not find a consistent place in the Spanish team last season and ended up only making 7 starts in La Liga. It was in late January that there were reports in Spain that Rafa Benitez wanted to bring Amadou to Newcastle on a loan deal.

Ibrahim Amadou– may move again this summer

It doesn’t look like Amadou is in the plans of Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui for this coming season and Sevilla are looking to offload the player. However they want to recover most of the €14m fee they paid for him last summer.

Sevilla recently signed former Newcastle target Nemanja Gudelj this summer who plays the same defensive midfield role as Amadou.

While we don’t think Newcastle will pursue another midfielder this summer, it would not hurt to have made some contacts just in case a move is made late in the window for one of ours. Both Isaac Hayden and Sean Longstaff have been had speculation about their futures arise this summer.

We don’t think Sevilla would get anywhere near what they paid Lille for Amadou this summer and we would expect that there is not much in this link. However, it would be comforting to know that the club are preparing for any sudden departures this summer.

    You’ve obviously swallowed Ashley’s lies about greedy Rafa selling out NUFC for money alone….hook, line and sinker!

    Absolutely not
    I’m surprised he did a third year
    but
    £500K per month is hard to walk out on
    Until someone offers £1M per month

    Is this not deja vu with the only previous time Ash released the purse strings to McLaren.

    One day we may get a real manager (Benitez calibre) to develop these promising young talents and the penny will finally drop…or may be not.

    I didn’t realise he walked out, I thought his contract expired and wasn’t willing to sign a new one which allowed Mikey and Chumpley to freely lie about everything and anything.

    Now there’s an idea,

    Liverpool have completed the sale of their training ground to an affordable housing provider, the club’s vice-president has said.
    The club announced it would leave Melwood in West Derby and move to a new £50m first team and academy training site in Kirkby in 2017.

    Once again Im not ‘pro ashley’. I’m not anti-rafa. I’m just a realist looking at facts.

    It’s just odd that theres a narrative Rafa is a Saint that is all about being competitive at the highest level.

    Did he move to a better squad? No. Dalian yifang fc is a crappy squad. Rafa left for money. Which is fine. The narrative that rafa left because he’s just too competitive just doesn’t hold up.
