    Sporting motivated to sell Diomande

    https://sportwitness.co.uk/newcastle...d-carpet-deal/

    The outlet has another piece about Sporting’s interest in selling the centre-back for less than his release clause. That means his price dropping from €80m to €50-60m.

    Let's see how much truth is in this one.

    I hope we're not after him, after I discovered hes from The Ivory Coast. I thought he was french for some reason...

    No ACON players for me. Its a no go for me, no matter how good they are.

    More yes than no, but wouldnt mind another Drogba or Salah.
    I would say for half the money it is worth the shot, if it is massive investment like 50-60 then I’d rather look somewhere else

    Suspect in his case we'd be used to flush out interest from CL clubs to be honest.

    A Bola the Portuguese periodical have once again reported that we're following up our interest in Diomande, Sporting have, as previously mentioned, made it public that they'll take a reduced fee for the lad of £42million to £50million.

    https://nufcfeed.com/newcastle-make-...g-price-606915

    Yes indeed being African is a pain in the backside every few years the Cup of Nations being played in Jan. So annoying, FIFA should sort that out, they won't of course because the European domestic leagues and UCL are UEFA and FIFA hate them.

    Anyway, back to this lad, regardless of whether he's gonna be away for a while every other year in Jan is no reason to turn our nose up at him.

    We've got Lascelles & Krafthacuta as cover right now FFS.

    The lad has the potential to be Kolo/Yaya Toure. Tall, Powerful, great in the air, reads the really well, UCL experience already at 20, good with both feet.

    We'd have one hell of a pairing for the next 5 or so years with him and Botman.

    A back line of:

    England internationals Tino & Hall at full back and these two in the centre, Trafford in net. That's a solid defensive unit indeed.

    Tino - Diomande - Botman - Hall
    --- Tonali - Bruno - Joelinton ---
    --- Olise - Isak - Gordon ---

    That's a pretty mint first 11 that like!

    I agree. Especially in such a key position.

    Unless its a low enough price to make it worthwhile.

    So by that logic, you guys wouldn't have signed, Yaya Toure or Mo Salah?

    Come guys, if the lad is gonna mature to be our VDV as Botman develops to be our Kompany £50m for a lad who's gonna be with us for 6-8 years is a bargain.

    Especially now we are a club with a board of directors and a recruitment team who over the next few windows will continue to bring in quality cover to replace Lascelles as we're seeing them do with Lloyd Kelly, we aren't gonna be moaning that he'll be away at the Cup of Nations if the same season we win the FA cup, League Cup of even the Premier League title are we?
