Portsmouth, Newcastle eyeing Bordeaux's Faubert

Portsmouth and Newcastle United are interested in Bordeaux fullback Julien Faubert.

Faubert's representatives have held talks with Roma this week, however it's understood Bordeaux are waiting for Premiership clubs to make their interest concrete to drive up the defender's valuation.

Newcastle and Portsmouth are both keen on Faubert, while Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson also had him scouted last season. However, Ferguson won't be bidding for Faubert, believing his characteristics won't suit the Premiership.
