According to Newcastle's The Evening Chronicle, Newcastle United seem to already be talking to 21 year old Kenyan international Victor Wanyama, a defensive midfielder. He would be a fantastic addition to the club if he comes for the reported £8 million. If he is signed, this would give Tiote much needed competition and potentially could mean that Tiote's time at NUFC might be limited. It is still early so this could fizzle out quickly as well.
Here are aome of Wanyama's highlights, the level of competition in the Scottish Premier League has to be taken into account though. Here are highlights of his game against Barcelona in the Champions League.
