Second Newcastle bid for centre back starlet rejected but another deal “edging closer”


Second Newcastle bid for centre back starlet rejected but another deal “edging closer”

Newcastle edging towards Diego Carlos deal

In what could prove to be some much needed defensive reinforcements, Sevilla defender Diego Carlos is reportedly “edging closer” to a move to Tyneside, despite “resistance at every turn” according to Luke Edwards of the Telegraph.

The Brazilian is one of the top defenders in La Liga, and would represent a sizeable coup for the new owners at Newcastle, although at 28 years old he is more likely a defender for the present than the future.

Nonetheless, his ability on and off the ball could be a crucial factor as Newcastle attempt to beat the drop, and it will be good news for Eddie Howe and co., who have been searching for a central defender since the beginning of the window.

However, on another front they have been dealt a serious set back.

Another defender on the way?

This comes as it seems AS Monaco are willing to hold out for an astronomical fee for central defender Benoit Badiashile. The 20 year old is a target for Eddie Howe and co., but according to a recent report from L:’Equipe, the Ligue 1 outfit have knocked back the Magpies’ latest 40 million euro bid for the defender earlier today.

This means that, should Newcastle wish to get their man, and perhaps a future cornerstone of the side, that they will have to break their transfer record to do so.

Is it worth doing in January?
