Newcastle United have reportedly joined the race for Celtic star defender Emilio Izaguirre. The 25-year old Honduran international has attracted plenty of interest following his impressive debut season in Scotland which yielded him a number of awards including the Scottish Premier League Player of the Year.
Pardew fears he may lose current left-back Jose Enrique and is searching for an apt replacement. The Toon feel he fits that bill after scouts were able to watch the former Motagua man on a number of occasions whilst they were keeping an eye on Celtic loanee Fraser Forster.
Reports suggest that Newcastle will start the bidding at £2.5million but Celtic will surely want more than that for the man they purchased for £600,000 last summer.
