The Brazilian World Cup winner had previously claimed to still be keen on moving to St James’ Park in the summer, even after talks about a move from Atletico Paranaense broke down during the January transfer window.

But reports in the Italian press suggest that Roma are set to clinch the midfielder’s signature after offering the cash-strapped Sao Paolo club veteran defender Aldair in part exchange.

But their could be some more South American talent arriving on Tyneside in the summer, as Newcastle scouts have reportedly been spotted at several matches involving Cordoba based team Racing Club.

The Racing Club line-up apparently includes some of Argentina’s best young talents and with Mick Wadsworth at a loose end he’d have the time to tie up the deal for us!
