Newcastle ‘want to sign’ Belgian international – Player available for €15m – Report

According to German outlet BILD, Newcastle United ‘want to sign’ Borussia Dortmund winger Thorgan Hazard this summer.

With the 29-year-old no longer a regular part of their first team, it’s believed the German club are willing to let the player leave for ‘around €15m’ – a relatively small fee that could enable us to spend big elsewhere.

Last season, the Belgian international made 29 league appearances in all competition – only 14 of those were starts – bagging five goals and one assist as Dortmund finished runners up to Bayern Munich once again.

He is believed to be one of the highest earners at the club – which may explain why they’re willing to sell at a reasonable price – with BILD reporting that he earns around €7million per year.

As a versatile winger who has also operated at wing-back, the Belgian could add strength in depth but may not be a suitable long-term option due to his age and injury record, which has ruled him out of 25 league games in the last two years.

  1. “€15m’ – a relatively small fee that may appeal to Toon chiefs.”

    So we’re not taking players baased on their ability – we’re looking for bargains.

    You do know that we were taken over by a wealthy consortium, don’t you?

    I’m personally not a big fan of this move – he’s nearly 30 and may be past his best – but I don’t really get this comment.

    It’s been said on several occasions that our budget won’t actually be THAT big this summer – £80-100m has been suggested – so we won’t be bringing in four or five £30-40m players.
