Newcastle scouts see Sissoko, Aubameyang in action

Newcastle United scouts were in the stands on Friday for St Etienne's clash with Toulouse.

The People says Newcastle's search for Demba Ba’s replacement saw them check out St. Etienne’s £10m-rated striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on Friday night.

Magpies representatives watched the Gabon striker as St. Etienne drew 2-2 at home with Toulouse. The visitors had ­another Toon target, midfielder Moussa Sissoko, in their line-up.

Neither Aubameyang nor Sissoko scored but both were involved in the build-up to goals.
