Defender with £67m release clause requests to leave club following Newcastle United offer – club keen to sign player before Leeds United match
Diego Carlos has reportedly requested to leave Sevilla following a transfer approach from Newcastle United.
The 28-year-old centre-back has emerged as a key target for Newcastle this month and is understood to be keen on a move.
Now Sky Sports are reporting that the player has asked to leave the La Liga club and is preparing to make a formal transfer request.
There are unconfirmed reports that the Brazilian has a release clause in the region of £67m though it is understood that Newcastle are looking to do business in the region of £30million.
The Magpies have already made two signings so far this January with Kieran Trippier arriving from Atletico Madrid for a reported £12million and Chris Wood signing from Burnley for £25million.
