Son of a gun Montpellier whiz Thomas Robert offered to Newcastle

The son of Laurent Robert is being linked with Newcastle United.

The Evening Chronicle says Newcastle will be offered the chance to sign Montpellier's Thomas Robert this summer - and the winger has already been looked at by the Magpies.

The exciting right-winger is available on a free transfer this summer and after shining in the UEFA Youth League he has already alerted both Rangers and Celtic in the Scottish Premiership.

However, the big link for the 19-year-old is the fact is father Laurent, who is a youth coach at Montpellier, was a superstar during his four-year stint on Tyneside.

Robert senior would love to see his son follow in his foot-steps at St James' Park.
