Newcastle United are favourites to land Olanrewaju Kayode “in a matter of days” SCORENigeria has been told on very good authority, just as those behind the transfer to the Premier League are confident there will be no issues concerning a work permit for the Nigeria striker.
“They are a top club who are back in the Premier League after they were relegated the previous season,” a source familiar with this transfer informed.
Interestingly, Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez had moaned about the few signings by the club leading up to their return to the big stage.
Another source assured that apprehension about Kayode facing work permit issues was unfounded.
“Just wait and see how things play out in the next couple of days,” he simply said.
Kayode is not an established international having only made his Eagles debut in March in a friendly against Senegal in London.
