French Report – Newcastle Right-Back Target On His Way To Turkey

This past Friday, Newcastle had been linked with an imminent bid for Portuguese defender Edgar Ié as a replacement for target Emil Krafth.

The reports from Friday claimed that Lille were going to use the funds generated from the sale of Ié to Newcastle to help in their attempt to sign Trabzonspor attacking midfielder Yusuf Yazici who is valued at €17m.

L’Equipe is reporting that Edgar Ié will be used in the deal to get Yazici but that he will actually join the Turkish club in part exchange this summer.

Here is a tweet from a Lille blog account that provides more information on the reported deal.

This tweet translates roughly translates to:

In its edition tomorrow, L’Equipe confirms the imminent arrival of Yazici for a sum of 16.5M € + Edgar Ié, who should join the Turkish club at the end of August and for whom Lille will keep 50% on the resale. In addition, Lille will also give up 20% of the added value of a future transfer.

Edgar Ié was seen as a possible target at right-back when earlier bids for Emil Krafth had been rejected by SC Amiens. The original news of Newcastle’s interest in the Portuguese defender came from reports in Turkey.

It still appears as though Newcastle are trying to work out a deal for Emil Krafth. Reports yesterday claimed that another English club were in for the Swede, though which one has not yet been stated.

L’Equipe reporter Flavien Tresarrieu, who first reported of an English clubs interest in Krafth, later followed up and suggested that it may even be a Championship club.

    It is always interesting to see why a person changes from lurker to poster Mund. Especially when they have a particular focus for their posts.

    as i say its definitely your choice the point i’m making is you don’t have to justify it on here you, obviously believe Ashley’s account of events over Rafa’s,
    so don’t try passing it off as supporting the team and not Ashley, it’s your choice your conscience, go to the game i hope you enjoy it, but you must know there will be consequences either on here or in the real world as emotions are running so high,

    Jail- You can change your name but let’s face it you can’t change your personality. You’re a nasty individual. You mistrust anyone you don’t know. Your views on feminism and other equality issues, crime/ punishment and support for those in need are simply uncaring and nasty.
    Your long suffering wife agrees and “but for the children …….”.
    You also kid yourself that you aren’t racist, prejudiced or just simply a bitter individual. The lack of humanity charge sheet could go on-
    You’ll doubtless be dismissive of all of the above but that will simply confirm you as the low life you truly are.

    PEA’s fee was matched Club wanted to sell him to us He chose Dortmund.

    As I say recruitment policy is flawed but twisting facts to suit on a medium which seizes and perpetuates inaccuracies isn’t something I welcome.

    May be me not hey ho.

    Trying just to read now and again whilst window open not intending to post so off now
