Toon keen on Bong - Valenciennes chief

Published Add your comment

Alan Pardew's ongoing bid to boost his defensive options could lead to Valenciennes' Gaetan Bong, with the French club's president claiming Newcastle have tabled an offer for the Cameroon left-back.

Despite bringing in France defender Mathieu Debuchy from another Ligue 1 club, Lille, this week, Pardew is still looking to strengthen in the area in order to take some pressure off his established names.

Valenciennes president Jean-Raymond Legrand told le10sport.com: "Newcastle are very interested, they have made an offer. We will wait and see. But I will not sell players unless I can replace them."
