Newcastle make move for Hull defender Zayatte

Newcastle United are chasing want-away Hull City defender Kamil Zayatte.

The Sunday Mirror says the Guinea defender, 24, will be shunted out after upsetting boss Phil Brown and losing his first-team place to Steven Mouyokolo.

Brown is fuming with Zayatte for declaring he wants to play for a bigger club.

He also angered the ­manager by claiming the Premier League strugglers priced him out of moves to Tottenham and West Ham in the transfer window.

Now Brown will off-load Zayatte in a £2.5million switch to Tyneside.

Toon chief Chris Hughton missed out on Zayatte when the player joined Hull for £2.5million 13 months ago.

But Hughton will move for him again after missing out on Sheffield United's Matt Kilgallon, who joined Sunderland instead.
