Newcastle want to sign Bamba Dieng

La Provence report that Premier League side Newcastle United are interested in signing 21-year-old Senegalese attacker Bamba Dieng.

Contrary to reporting in England, no firm offer has yet been received by Marseille from The Magpies, but their interest is real, and they have scouted the player on multiple occasions, just like West Ham, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace have.

OM boss Jorge Sampaoli has no intention of letting the player go if an offer is made and the player himself is very happy in Marseille, where he has recently signed a contract extension with a wage bump.
