Newcastle hunt for Turkey...International

Newcastle United are closing in on Inter Milan Midfielder Emre Belozoglu. The Magpies have been monitoring Emre's situation throughout the summer months and have finally made a formal approach to his club Inter Milan.

Emre set for Magpies

Inter, however, are yet to accept the offer from the Magpies due to intrest from Galatasaray and Fenerbahce, natives to the 24 year old's country,Turkey. This is much to Emre's annoyance, as he has previously stated that he is eager to move to The Premiership, rather than heading back to Turkey.

As far as I'm concered, Emre is a over-rated player. He has failed to settle down in Italy, rarely finding himself in the first-team, he will find it hard to settle into the fast-moving Premiership and even harder to settle into glam-filled Teeside.

Souness! You're wasting your money!
