Report: Dame N'Doye 'keen' to sign for Newcastle after Hull City's relegation

Hull City KC North Stand

Hull City striker Dame N'Doye reportedly wants to join Newcastle United this summer.

According to The Chronicle, striker Dame N'Doye wants to join Newcastle United this summer after Hull City's relegation to the Championship.

Hull were relegated on the final day of the Premier League season after a 0-0 draw with Manchester United, as Newcastle's 2-0 home win over West Ham consigned the Tigers to the Championship.

A number of players will be keen to stay in the Premier League rather than play in the second tier next term, and it seems that striker N'Doye is one of them.

The 30-year-old centre forward only joined Hull from Lokomotiv Moscow back in January, and whilst he scored five goals in 15 games in a promising spell at the KC Stadium, it wasn't enough to keep Steve Bruce's men in the Premier League.

Now, the former FC Copenhagen star could be on the move this summer, and The Chronicle believe that he has already set his sights on a move to Newcastle United, with the forward described as being 'keen' to join Newcastle in the coming months.

N'Doye is an international team mate of Magpies striker Papiss Cisse, and the report suggests that the duo have recently spent time together to try and get N'Doye used to life in the North East.

That would suggest that Newcastle also hold an interest in a deal, with the suggestion that N'Doye will be offered to Newcastle by Hull in a bid to strike an agreement ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Magpies certainly needing a striker after the failure of last summer's signings Emmanuel Riviere and Facundo Ferreyra, and N'Doye could fill that void after a solid start to life in English football.
