Newcastle push to sign Atletico Madrid defender Alderweireld

Newcastle United are chasing Atletico Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld.

The People says the Magpies face stiff competition for the versatile Belgium star from local rivals Sunderland, as well as Monaco and Southampton.

And the 25-year-old, who can play at both right-back and centre-back, would prefer to join a club playing European football.

Newcastle are trying to unload France centre-back Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa - who is wanted by Marseille - so they need a new defender.
