Newcastle United has opened talks with FC Basel for striker Eren Derdiyok. According to the Sunday Sun, United officials first met with representatives of the 20-year-old Swiss striker in London last week.
It was reported that further positive discussions took place and that everything is now set for the Magpies to move in with a firm bid and imminently land the youngest player to feature at Euro 2008.
Derdiyok, whose parents are Turkish, is also attracting interest from Besiktas and Fenerbahce, but neither club could match the wages on offer from Newcastle.
