Allardyce: Considering bid
Newcastle are set to make a bid for Hungarian starlet Tamas Kadar, according to reports.
It is reported in Hungary by Obudaisport that St James' Park boss Sam Allardyce is considering a £650,000 move for the 17-year-old Zalaegerszeg defender.
Kadar is keen on a move when the January transfer window opens after recently undergoing a trial with Newcastle and playing in a friendly against Hartlepool.
When in England Kadar also spent time with Bolton, but Newcastle appear to have the edge as they would want the teenager - who has played for Hungary's Under 21 side - to ease their central defensive problems in the future.
"I really enjoyed being in England," Kadar told Skysports.com.
"In Bolton they would count me as a left-sided defender and in Newcastle I would play in the centre of the defence. I admit this (central) is my favourite place on the pitch.
"I know nothing about the financial details, but I did my very best and I know they both liked my performances.
"I was told that I would have a good chance to sign in England and my move might be realized in the winter transfer period."
