The 19-year-old central midfielder is one of the brightest prospects in the second tier of French football, and if sources are to be believed, the Magpies are in pole position to negotiate a deal with Strasbourg to bring the box-to-box midfielder to St James' Park.

He has made 10 senior appearances for his club, to date, but is thought to be a star in the making in France.
