Guinean international Zayette currently plays for Swiss club BSC Young Boys but looks to be the answer to Kevin Keegan's left-sided problems and could be heading to Tyneside before the transfer window closes.

The Magpies boss has reportedly seen a third bid, of around £4million, rejected by Blackburn.

So that leaves the 23-year-old Zayette, who can also play as a defensive midfielder. Newcastle are leading the chase for his signature despite interest from Premier League rivals Everton.
