Newcastle United & Aston Villa In Battle to Sign £2m Senegal Winger

St James’ Park and Villa Park sides target Cluj wide-man.

Aston Villa, Newcastle and Norwich will have FC Cluj winger Modou Sougou watched at Manchester United on Wedneday night.

Sougou, 27, impressed against United in October and caught the eye again, scoring against Galatasaray last month.

This Premier League trio are joined by Swansea and Bolton, who are also tracking the Senegal international, who is reportedly available for around £2m and wants to leave Romania in January.

The fact that Sougou has a Portuguese passport will ease work permit issues and as such the former Académica wide-man could be heading for the English top tier.

Sougou helped Cluj to the Romanian title in his first season at the club and thus far this term has saved his best form for the Champions League where he has helped his side to mount a genuine assault on a spot in the last 16.
