Toon want Serie A winger

Published Add your comment

Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing Dutch winger Eljero Elia from Juventus in January, according to the Daily Mail.


Alan Pardew apparently tried to sign the Holland international in the summer when he left old club Hamburg, but he decided to choose Turin over the Toon.


Elia has been unsuccessful during his spell in Italy and the Magpies boss reportedly wants to bring him to the Sports Direct Arena for the rest of the season on loan.


Juventus may not be wiling to let the 24-year-old leave just six months after they signed him, but the speedy winger has only featured three times so far this season.


Elia made his name at Dutch side ADO Den Haag before moving to FC Twente where he was impressive in helping them to a second place finish in the Eredivisie behind champions AZ Alkmaar.


His performances for the Holland Under-21 team lead many of Europe’s top clubs to take an interest in him, leading to a move to Hamburg in the Bundesliga in June 2009.
