Paris Saint-Germain defender Stanley Nsoki wants to join this summer but there has to be a decision within the next 24 hours for the transfer to be able to go through, according to the Chronicle.

The newspaper claims that Newcastle know what Nsoki’s contract demands are and need to decide today (Wednesday) whether they want to match those demands so that he has enough time to find another club if they do not want him.

It is understood that the 20-year-old left-back wants to join the Magpies and is eager to play in front of the club’s passionate fans and for manager Steve Bruce.

The Chronicle adds that although Newcastle are keeping their cards close to their chest, they are hopeful of being able to sign the France Under-21 international.

OPINION

Newcastle have twiddled their thumbs for most of the summer so fans will no doubt be worried by this deadline day that has been set to sign Nsoki from PSG. It took the club ages to sort out the managerial situation and they have only signed one new player for the first-team squad so far, so matching Nsoki’s demands within 24 hours might be something they will avoid doing. The Frenchman should be a good signing for Newcastle if they do decide to match his contract demands. Nsoki can play at left-back and as a centre-back. He appeared 15 times across all competitions for PSG last term as they won the Ligue 1 title with ease. He also assisted two goals in the Trophee des Champions win against Monaco. Paul Dummett is Newcastle’s only proper left-back unless you include fringe player Achraf Lazaar, so it is an area of the squad that could do with a new face.
