Newcastle go for French pair Haidara, Thauvin

Newcastle United are pushing to land two French signings this week.

The Evening Chronicle says they have had a bid accepted for Massadio Haidara of Nancy and there have been preliminary discussions over personal terms.

Bastia youngster Florian Thauvin is also wanted to bolster Newcastle’s paper-thin squad and the France under-20 man is said to be available for £1.5m.
