According to TMW, Newcastle United have told Valentino Lazaro that they have not yet made a decision on his future.
It has actually been reported by the Italian news outlet that in the most recent rounds of talks with Lazaro and his entourage, Newcastle have stated that they have yet to make a decision whether they will sign him on a permanent contract from Inter Milan.
According to the report, the Premier League club need to pay EUR22 million (₤1966 million) as transfer fee to Inter to make the offer permanent.
Newcastle United loan spell
Lazaro joined Newcastle on loan from Italian giants Inter in the January transfer window up until completion of the season.
The Austria international winger has actually made 2 starts and 2 replacement appearances in the Premier League, and has actually scored one goal in one FA Cup tie for the Magpies, according to WhoScored.
Permanent contract or not?
Lazaro is an excellent winger, however the 24- year-old’s efficiencies for the Magpies during his loan spell up until now have not actually been impressive.
In the 218 minutes that the 24- year-old has actually played in the Premier League, it is actually going to be hard for Newcastle to evaluate if they need to sign him on a permanent offer.
