Anderlecht defender Cheikou Kouyate calls on Newcastle United to make an offer for his services.

Anderlecht defender Cheikou Kouyate has revealed that he would be interested in joining Newcastle United this summer.

The 23-year-old, who has also been linked with Southampton, is widely expected to depart Belgium this summer with a number of clubs interested in his signature.

"We are all ambitious. I want to move in my career. If I improve, big clubs from abroad will come for me," he told reporters at a press conference.

"The story of Arsenal was true but nothing materialised. Arsene Wenger is a great coach and to show an interest in me was fantastic. Newcastle could be great as well, but let's wait and see."

A number of Ligue 1 clubs, including Lyon, have also been credited with an interest.
