Panathinaikos chief Dabizas returns to Newcastle for midfield pair

Panathinaikos are chasing Newcastle United midfield pair Mehdi Abeid and Romain Amalfitano.

The Journal says Abeid impressed with the Greek club last season, while Amalfitano was with French Ligue 2 side Dijon.

Former Newcastle defender Nikos Dabizas is technical director of Panathinaikos, who have qualified for next season's Champions League after winning their play-off with PAOK. Doing so has given Dabizas money to invest.

Dabizas will face competition from Dijon for Amalfitano, who are keen to make the winger's loan permanent.
