Want Away Star Heads To Italy

Last updated : 03 September 2019 By Footy Mad - Editor

Achraf Lazaar has completed a season-long loan move to Cosenza.

The Newcastle United player will stay with the Serie B side until June 30 after Steve Bruce opted against handing him a squad number.

Lazaar played twice in pre-season against West Ham and Wolves, but the Magpies have struck an agreement with the Italian second-tier side.

In doing so they have trimmed the wage bill and handed Lazaar another chance to impress in Italy.

He spent the first half of the 2017/18 campaign with Benevento before returning to Tyneside.

The former Palermo star has two years left of his current contract.
