Eibar chief admits Newcastle closing on Lejeune

Eibar Sporting director Fran Garagarza admits they face losing Florian Lejeune this summer.

Newcastle United are favourites to sign the former Manchester City-owned defender.

“I'm not very optimistic, I see it difficult for Lejeune to stay," Garagarza told Marca.

“We are worried that Newcastle are taking very strong steps."

Newcastle are set for some serious squad rotation as they prepare for life in the top flight.
