​Newcastle linked with Le Havre defender Meras

Newcastle United are being linked with a move for Le Havre defender Umut Meras.

The 24-year-old plays at left back and has impressed this season.

He is rated at roughly £8 million and is a recent Turkish international.

The player would be open to a move to the Premier League, per Fotomac.

It is unclear if the move for Meras depends on how the Newcastle United takeover progresses.

He may be a lower budget target, in case Mike Ashley is still at the helm when the transfer window opens.
