Newcastle United Transfer Target Sebastien Haller Moving to Sporting Lisbon


Reports that Newcastle United are about to sign Utrecht’s 22-year-old striker Sebastien Haller are widely off the mark, according to Dutch sources. Instead, sources out of France are indicating that he could be moving to Portuguese outfit Sporting Lisbon for £12 million.

The Frenchman, who has scored 32 goals in 56 matches at club level, refused a transfer to Guangzhou Evergrande earlier in the window, and has reportedly stated his unwillingness to move down a division to play for Rafa Benitez’s new-look Newcastle United. He was linked with the likes of Everton, Southampton and Sunderland before.
