Newcastle 'agree personal terms with Diego Carlos after defender tells Sevilla he wants to quit for £30m transfer'

NEWCASTLE UNITED have allegedly agreed personal terms with Diego Carlos as they close in on the transfer of the Sevilla star.

As we reported last night, the defender has told the Spanish club he wants to quit.


The ex-Nantes ace is now handing in a written transfer request.

And Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims he has already discussed and agreed a package to join Newcastle.

He is set to sign a five-year contract at St. James’ Park as Toon near a £30m swoop.

The Toon have already had one bid rejected for the Brazil centre-back, 28, who reportedly has a £67million release clause.

But they are confident their latest offer, and the player’s desire to move to the Premier League, should be enough to get the transfer over the line. 

Eddie Howe wants urgent reinforcements for second-bottom Newcastle.

Howe has also managed to bolster his frontline since the window re-opened.

They met the £25m release clause to sign Chris Wood from Burnley last week.
