Real Betis defender Junior Firpo tracked by Newcastle, Crystal Palace

Real Betis defender Junior Firpo is attracting major Premier League interest.

ABC says Newcastle United and Crystal Palace have both sent scouts to watch Junior.

The 22-year-old left-back has been in fine form for La Liga side Real Betis and notched three goals in his last four appearances.

He has a huge £44.6million release clause in his contract, but it is not expected to take a fee of that magnitude to tempt Betis to part with the Dominican Republic-born player.

Junior has also been tracked by Arsenal and Manchester City this past year.
