Sky Sports have today confirmed Newcastle’s interest in Senegalese International Badou N’diaye, claiming they are set to battle West Ham for the highly-rated midfielder.
The 26-year-old has been impressing in the Turkish league for Osmanlispor, bagging 18 goals and 7 assists across the past two seasons from midfield.
