Newcastle United are set to test Toulouse’s resolve with an increased offer for right-back Albin Ebondo. The 24-year-old is a target for the Magpies, and a transfer was on the cards last week, if not for the sudden change of heart of the French club.

Magpies’ gaffer Joe Kinnear never took his side out of the running for the defender’s signature, and according to The Daily Star a deal could be struck for £3.5m before the dead line at 5pm.
