West Ham and Newcastle set to go head to head in battle for star defender



According to France Football, Saint-Etienne have received offers from West Ham United and Newcastle United for full back Kevin Malcuit.

Kevin Malcuit is highly rated by Saint-Etienne so they will try to resist any offers for him this summer.

Right back is a priority for both Newcastle and West Ham.

The Hammers need some competition for Sam Byram and Newcastle want to add another right back to challenge DeAndre Yedlin.

Now that Newcastle have confirmed their promotion back to the Premier League, they can start diverting their attention to their summer transfer business as they look to strengthen their squad so that it is well equipped for survival next term.

Kevin Malcuit has emerged as a key target but they will need to shrug off West Ham United for his services.

Saint-Etienne previously rejected offers for the 25-year-old, who can also play as a winger, in January but they might be powerless to stop him leaving this summer.

Newcastle fans – Malcuit: yes or no? Can you beat West Ham to his signature? Let us know below…
