Scouts from newly promoted English Premier League side Newcastle United were sighted in the stands during Feirense 1-0 win over Pacos de Ferreira in a Portuguese Liga game.
The scouts were reportedly at the match venue to run the rule on Nigeria international Oghenekaro Etebo who plays for CD Feirense in view of a move for him in the summer.
Etebo lasted the entire duration of the game, and although he wasn’t at his best. He showed flashes of his undoubted abilities in what was a very dour and boring game.
21 year old Etebo has been heavily linked with a summer move away from the modest Portuguese side with England rumoured to be his next destination, where Leicester City and Newcastle United have been linked.
Rumours also has it that Turkish side Fenerbahce, French side Monaco and Spanish La-Liga side Sevilla are also lining up a move for the forward.
