Strasbourg eyeing Newcastle goalkeeper Matz Sels

Strasbourg are eyeing Newcastle United goalkeeper Matz Sels.

The Daily Mail says Newcastle are keen to sell Sels this summer and Ligue 1 outfit Strasbourg are ready to make a £4m move.

Sels played the second half in last Tuesday's friendly win over St Patrick's Athletic but has no realistic chance of a future on Tyneside.

Having spent last season on loan at Anderlecht, Sels finds himself as Newcastle's fifth choice goalkeeper behind Martin Dubravka, Karl Darlow, Rob Elliot and Freddie Woodman.

Strasbourg have emerged as the latest side interested and although the £4m bid is around £1m less than what Newcastle paid Gent to sign Sels two years ago, they are likely to take the hit and cash in.
