Report – Valencia Want To Bring In Newcastle Defender Prior To Monday’s Transfer Deadline

Sport Witness have an article reporting that Valencia are looking at Javier Manquillo as an answer to their right-back issue. Sport Witness site two Spanish outlets as the source for their report.

Valencia recently lost their starting right-back Cristiano Piccini to a serious knee injury. The Italian suffered a broken kneecap during training on Wednesday and is out for five months.

The Spanish club were hoping to bring Napoli’s Elseid Hysaj in on loan. However, the Serie A side are unwilling to let the player leave on a loan deal. Now, according to the reports in Spain, Valencia may look to bring Javier Manquillo as an option at right-back. The Spanish transfer window is open until Monday.

With the current injury crisis that has befallen Newcastle, we doubt Steve Bruce would allow Manquillo to leave. While the club have three options at right-back, Manquillo is currently the only one who is fit. Emil Krafth is suffering from a thigh strain while DeAndre Yedlin is still coming back from groin surgery.
