Newcastle United are reportedly planning to make a summer move for Angers midfielder Cheick N’Doye.
The Magpies are looking to get their transfer business done early after being relegated from the Premier League.
The 30-year-old midfielder has been one of the stand-out players this season for Angers in Ligue 1.
N’Doye is out of contract next summer and he has reportedly made it known that he wants to move to England.
He scored seven goals in 20 league games, but Newcastle face competition from a host of English clubs including Swansea, West Ham and Aston Villa.
