Sky Sports confirm Newcastle United’s interest in another Brazilian international

Newcastle United are showing interest in Brazilian international defender Renan Lodi, according to Sky Sports.

As revealed by Keith Downie – Sky’s North-East correspondent – the Atletico Marid left-back is a player we’re believed to be looking at and could form part of our summer transfer plans.

This is not the first time the 24-year-old has been linked with a possible switch to St James’ Park, with an Football Transfers ‘exclusive’ revealing that we showed interest in the La Liga full-back during the final week of the January window.

It’s not yet clear, but this feels like further confirmation that Eddie Howe is not set on a permanent move for Matt Targett, despite the fact the Aston Villa loanee has impressed during his short stay on Tyneside.

Any move for Lodi would also see yet another Brazilian arrive – he plays alongside Bruno Guimaraes in the national side – not to mention the fact he’d know Kieran Trippier well from their time together at Atletico Madrid.

Here’s what Keith Downie had to say, seeing Sky Sports sources confirm our interest in the marauding South American:

Understand Renan Lodi is a player Newcastle have looked at and could potentially form part of their summer plans.

15-times capped Brazilian international left-back. Newcastle have already done business of late with Atletico for fellow full-back Kieran Trippier.’
