NUFC interested in ex-West Ham winger – & current club are willing to sell in January – Report

According to Turkish outlet ‘Aksam’, Newcastle are interested in a deal to sign Galatasaray winger Sofiane Ferghouli in January – the Algerian international who left West Ham just a year ago.

The right-winger is no longer a guaranteed starter under Turkish boss Fatih Terim, with the Galatasaray also in desperate need of cash given their need to balance their books due to FFP (financial fair play).

The former Valencia winger had a very mixed spell with the Hammers across the 2016/17 season, but he’s done very well on the whole since returning to Turkey, bagging 7 goals and 10 assists on their way to the league title last season.

He turns 29 this month so technically wouldn’t fit into the strict transfer policy set by a certain Mike Ashley, but hopefully this tedious vice on incomings will be more IF new owners arrive.

From what I remember when watching him for West Ham, he looked to have pace and seemed a real hard worker, however it’s best to take this story with a pinch of salt (especially given how unreliable Turkish reports have tended to be in the past).

Here’s him in action:
