Newcastle United target speaks about prospective transfer

Newcastle United target Sebastien Haller has spoken regarding reports linking him with a move to St. James’ Park.

Despite splashing the cash to secure the services of Dwight Gayle, Newcastle United remain in the market to sign a new striker and it has been reported recently that the Magpies were considering a swoop for Utrecht star Sebastien Haller.

Haller has been one of the most prolific strikers in the Dutch Eredivisie over the past few years and French publication L’Equipe went as far as claiming that manager Rafael Benitez had made a personal phone call to the striker in an attempt to convince him to join Newcastle.

Now Haller has gone on to have his say regarding such claims and has stated that the reports have no credibility whatsoever. The Frenchman added that such rumors were a bit ‘annoying’ before going on to pledge his allegiance to Utrecht.

The 22-year-old was quoted saying by Fox News, “That’s going around on Twitter and Instagram, huh?That makes it awkward. If you believe everything, I’d have already been at FC Barcelona. But I feel good at Utrecht. I do not have to leave.

“It’s a bit annoying though. I concentrate on the matches with Utrecht and my own jobs. I feel really good and I want to help the team like I did last season.”
