Sky Sports reveal Diego Carlos asking price & NUFC’s latest bid as Chris Wood deal moves closer

Sky Sports have revealed that Chris Wood has passed his medical at Newcastle United, with personal terms ‘still ongoing’ but not expected to be a problem.

In the not so good news, Sky’s Kaveh Solhekol claims that our new improved bid for Sevilla centre-back Diego Carlos is £28m and looks set to be rejected.

He believes that the La Liga side are demanding around £40m for the Brazilian, suggesting we will have to submit yet another offer for the 28-year-old if we want to him signed before Saturday’s clash with Watford.

Back to Wood, Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has revealed that the 30-year-old Kiwi passed his medical on Tyneside last night and will be announced as a Newcastle United player once personal terms over an expected two-and-a-half year deal are agreed.

Here’s what both had to say in their latest updates on Wood and Carlos:

Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol on Diego Carlos:

“This has already been reported by Jason Burt in The Telegrapgh and also talkSPORT earlier this evening, but the message I have just got is Newcastle have made a £28m bid for Sevilla defender Diego Carlos.

“Sevilla are looking for about £40m for him so I’m not sure £28m will be enough.”

Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Sheth on Chris Wood: 

“Chris Wood has passed his Newcastle medical and personal terms are still ongoing, but being finalised. They are not expected to be a problem.

We are edging closer to the announcement of Wood as a Newcastle player.”
