Newcastle United “still love” Bayer Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby, who was a target for the club during the summer window.

That is according to transfer insider Dean Jones who has informed GIVEMESPORT of Newcastle’s desire to sign the star as we venture ever closer to the January transfer window.

Diaby is a player that the club and PIF still greatly admire.

On the matter, Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “I’ve spoken a lot about this. I know for a fact that they do still love Diaby, and it’s no surprise because he’s got that game-changing potential. He’s got something different about him from most players in the Premier League.”

“Game-changing potential”

The statement regarding Diaby’s potential is spot on from Jones.

The 23-year-old arrived at Leverkusen in the 19/20 season as a left-winger and was eased into the role of right-wing, which is now his primary position in the side, due to his left-footed inverted approach out wide.

It’s in this position that the star shines brightest, as illustrated by his staggering return of 25 goal contributions in the form of 13 goals and 12 assists.

The £60million star has carried that sensational form into this campaign and currently sits on six goals and three assists in 15 Bundesliga appearances.

At just 23-years-old, it is clear that Diaby’s ceiling is limitless. So it’s entirely understandable as to why PIF “still love” the transfer target.
