Trouble Brewing Before He Even Signs For The Toon!

According to reports in France ... the Congolese defender is having the same problem we had with Distin back in 2002.

Distin regarded himself as a central defender and had many an argument when Sir Bobby continued to play him at left-back. In the end he left to join Man City ... on condition he played in the centre of the defence.

26-year-old Ilunga is said to be in Kevin Keegan's sights, but I get the feeling there could be trouble brewing IF he does come on board at St James' Park, because we all know left-back is the position KK is desperate to fill.

Apparently he is available for "around £2 million".
