Newcastle reportedly after Central American Defender

According to reports from Hondura’s Diez, Newcastle may swoop for Sunderland defender Bryan Oviedo. After displaying some promising performances as a squad rotation player for Everton, Oviedo was brought to the Stadium of Light by David Moyes in January.

With the Black Cats going to play in the Championship next season, the 27 year old will be looking to increase his stay in the Premiership in order to boost his chances of making the Costa Rica squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Newcastle are looking to add quality into their side in order to boost their chances of being competitive in the Premier League next season.

It would be a surprise if the Magpies do end up luring Oviedo. Rafa Benitez is set to be handed a significant transfer budget and will be expected to lure players with quality as well as those who have impressed while performing at the highest level.
