Newcastle United look to bolster squad with Adama Diakite

Words by Kevin Doocey on .

Jean-Claude Blanc, Juventus president looking at Adama Diakite too

Newcastle United seem to be catching on to the way a football club is run, and the youth policy is one of the more important. Newcastle have been linked with possible moves for Manchester United’s Tom Cleverly and now Lens  attacker Adama Diakite. Diakite is pretty unknown and there’s very little information available on him online but what we do know is that he is a highly-rated youngster. Juventus tried to seal a deal for him in August and now, alongside us, Werder Bremen are rumoured to be firming up their interest in the 19 year-old.

We here at Tyne Time managed to drain our rich resources from far and abroad and we managed to get a picture of Adama Diakite and to be honest, it could well be a different one although this guy definitely plays for lens.

Adama Diakite

Graham Carr, a Toon scout is meant to have watched him on Thursday night and immediately recommended him to Chris Hughton when he returned. This is the same guy who recommends Tom Cleverly, and although not that impressive, he’s clearly looking at the right type of players for sure.

If there’s any French Newcastle United fans out there, do enlighten us with information about Adama in the comments section, because as I’ve said, there’s as much info about him available as there was for Sirous Mahjoob!

Comments welcome 🙂

If he's French he's trouble don't touch him with a bargepole.

Bassong, N'Zogbia, Ginola, Boumsong, Robert, Bernard - All French former Toon players.

you seem to have missed out the real gems there, Doocey. who could ever forget Domi, Perez, Goma, Saha, Distin or Dumas? But anyway, top label all French players as trouble is a bit harsh, at least 2 or 3 of those we've had in the last 15 years haven't been *total* wankers!

Geordieboy Certainly the club would prefer to put out a team of local lads, unfortunately we dont produce any decent players anymore. And whether they stayed or not in general we have had some pretty good French players. If they are good enough , who cares where they come from.

he played 11 games for us on loan, maybe not a load of games but he did still play for us, so yes, that makes him a former toon player. and seriously, calling me a noob? grow the fuck up.

he's flagged as an offensive all rounder. 19 years of age and scored 1 goal in 11 starts this year and 2 goals in 15 starts the year before. I wouldn't call him an attacker

Diakite: ⏱ 15/04/2010

Hi, He's a young lad that plays mainly for our reserve team this year. Good technicall skills, quite fast and can play in several offensive positions. He was French champion last year with our U18 team (now they changed the youth system, it's closer to what we call the under 19) and has been called several times for the French national team in his age categories, most recently with the French U18. He scored this week-end with our reserve team, but this is one aspect of his game that he'll need to improve. He has one year left on his youth contract, one of my fav's in our academy :)
