Newcastle transfer news: Sevilla anger Toon owners over Diego Carlos

Newcastle United’s bid to sign Diego Carlos during the January transfer window is turning into quite the saga.

The Magpies have been chasing the centre-back all month, initially alongside Lille’s Sven Botman.

Newcastle were priced out of a move for the Dutchman, and it looks like the same could be happening with Carlos.

It has been reported that the 28-year-old has agreed a five-year deal with Newcastle, while Sky claimed that he handed in a transfer request to Sevilla.

However, it seems like the La Liga title chasers just simply aren’t playing ball – much to the frustration of the Toon hierarchy.

Newcastle could be about to move on from Diego Carlos

According to the Daily Express, Newcastle are considering ending their pursuit of Carlos. That will be hugely disappointing for Toon fans, who are desperate to see a centre-back arrive.

Sevilla were in action last night, and Carlos played the full 90 minutes as they drew 1-1 away at Valencia. After the game, Carlos told reporters: “I have a lot of time left here.”

That’s despite the fact he reportedly asked to leave 24 hours earlier…

Sevilla appear to have moved the goalposts, and the Spanish side have reportedly frustrated Newcastle’s owners.

It was claimed by Sky Sports last night that another Premier League club is keen on Carlos, but the Express state that Newcastle believe Sevilla are just messing them around. That would make sense, as they look to get as much money as possible for their player.

Sevilla want around £50million for Carlos, but it doesn’t look like Newcastle will pay it. This transfer saga hangs by a thread.

Other reports claim deal is still on

While the Daily Express state that Newcastle might pull the plug, other outlets are saying different.

Both Sky Sports and the Daily Mail state that the Magpies are confident of securing the deal.

It appears that negotiations between the two clubs are still ongoing, with both parties looking to strike the best deal for themselves.

Sevilla know Newcastle have money and don’t want to lose their star player. Meanwhile, Newcastle don’t want to be taken advantage of but desperately want to secure Carlos’ services.

It looks like he definitely won’t be in the team to face Leeds…just getting him in the team at all would be a victory right now.
