Brighton, Crystal Palace chasing Newcastle midfielder Mo Diame

Newcastle United midfielder Mo Diame is attracting rival Premier League interest.

Turkish giants Besiktas and Galatasaray plus clubs from Spain and Italy are interested in signing the 31-year-old whose contract at St James's Park expires this summer, says the Daily Star.

That makes him eligible for a free transfer heightening demand for his services.

In this country, Brighton and Crystal Palace are also keeping an eye on developments.

But Diame's situation is not straightforward. If he starts another three Premier League games for the Magpies that will automatically trigger a new 12-month deal.

The Senegal international, however, wants to secure his long-term future and would prefer a two-year contract, something the club may be reluctant to offer him.
