Altay Bayındır’s impressive performances for Fenerbahçe in domestic competitions have caught attention of clubs across Europe, and the list includes Newcastle United.
On October 5th, we relayed news from Turkey the Tyneside club ‘insistently want’ the goalkeeper.
It was also stressed a ‘serious offer’ is needed to take him away from the Süper Lig side.
This report surfaced days before Saudi Arabia’s Public Invest Fund confirmed the purchase of the Premier League side. The arrival of the new owners has allowed the Magpies to have considerable funds to make big changes at the club.
Newcastle’s change of ownership earlier this month has not impacted their desire to sign the Turkey international.
According to En Son Haber, the keeper ‘with the promising future’ is still on the English club’s ‘transfer list’.
It’s even claimed Newcastle could make an approach for the Fenerbahçe keeper in the winter market.
As per the report, Newcastle ‘will knock on Fenerbahçe’s door’ and are ‘expected to make an official offer’ for Bayındır in January. En Son Haber states a proposal of around €20m will see the Turkish club open the door for the custodian’s sale.
