Newcastle United are being linked with a double transfer swoop on Teteh and Mohamed Bangura.

The Sierra Leone internationals have been impressive for AIK Solna as an attacking pair in the Swedish top flight, and reports in Scandinavia claim that the Magpies are watching both men.

"I know Newcastle United have seen all my matches and follow me," said 21-year-old Teteh Bangura.

AIK sporting director Jens Andersson confirmed that interest is also strong in Mohamed, another 21-year-old striker.

"The interest hasn't faded, it's no lower than a few months before." he told

"I think that he has just become better and better. The big difference is that he so far hasn't scored many goals, but they will come and I think that the clubs that follow him know that.

"Foreign clubs see him in each game and they know what class he has. And there are more now than earlier this spring that follow Mohamed."


Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has been linked with a handful of strikers this summer, with Mevlut Erding and Mladen Petric both linked with a St James' Park switch this summer.

Whilst Erding is believed to be the number one target, a lack of attacking options at Newcastle United has put the club in the market for a number of players, with money at the manager's disposal following the sales of Andy Carroll and Kevin Nolan in January and June respectively.

A move for the two Bangura strikers would represent a gamble for the Toon, although Newcastle have enjoyed success with African players in the past, most recently with the rise of Ivorian midfielder Cheik Tiote last season.
