Lyon star open to Newcastle move

Lyon defender Samuel Umtiti would be interested in a summer move to Newcastle, according to his brother.

The 22-year-old has long been linked with a move to the Magpies.

His brother and agent, Yannick, told France Foot 01: “I was contacted in recent weeks by English agents who discussed the idea of Newcastle.

“But honestly, not a single concrete offer has been made at this point by an English club. We would consider an offer from Newcastle and the interest of other clubs who will eventually position themselves this summer.”
