Newcastle’s transfer hammer blow confirmed as president confirms centre-back transfer is off

Newcastle target a new defender

A centre-back has been high on the Newcastle wishlist, and it is easy to see why. The club have conceded 43 goals so far this campaign, which stands them very much in relegation form.

At present, a 25 million euro bid for Sevilla’s Diego Carlos is the closest that the Magpies seem to be to finding a new defender, and now they have been dealt news that they were expecting on another.

Door on Botman firmly closed

And, what was feared has indeed become reality, as Newcastle are going to miss out on their no.1 target at centre-back.

David Ornstein reported last week that it seemed “all but off”.

And now, the door has been slammed shut by Lille’s president, who confirmed that the defender will be at Lille for the second half of the season, saying:

“Sven Botman will stay here until the end of the season. He’s not gonna leave the club – he’s key player to help us achieve our goals”

It remains to be seen just how far down their list of targets Newcastle will have to go to find a centre-back, but they are running out of time to pull off the great escape.
