Newcastle United eyeing free agent Thomas Robert

​Newcastle United are reportedly interested in signing Thomas Robert on a free transfer ahead of the summer window according to several reports.

As per Daily Mail, Newcastle have been assessing Robert who recently turned away the opportunity to sign a new three-year deal at Montpellier.

The 19-year-old is believed to be looking for a team that will guarantee him first-team football; the motivation behind leaving the French club.

This won't be the first time a Robert has played for the Magpies as his father played for the club between 2001 and 2005 and he could potentially be the reason his son joins the club.

The teenager is versatile as a winger on both flanks and as an attacking midfielder in a central position.
