Newcastle, Tottenham chasing Basel keeper Sommer

Newcastle United and Tottenham are interested in FC Basel goalkeeper Yann Sommer.

The Daily Star Sunday says the Swiss international 24 will be available for around £3.5million in January after refusing to sign a new deal.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is looking to bring another quality keeper to White Hart Lane as veteran American stopper Brad Friedel, now 42, nears the end of his career.

Newcastle are also monitoring the situation amid fears their Dutch keeper Tim Krul will once again be targeted by Europe's top clubs - either in the new year transfer window or next summer.
