Hassan Toon interest confirmed
Ahmed Hassan's agent has confirmed that Newcastle United are hot on the star's trail.
The Besiktas midfielder will be a free agent during the summer and he recently revealed that he would leap at the chance of a move to England.
Fulham were also credited with an interest in the Egyptian international, although his agent, Alper Gokdemir, has now revealed that he is expecting the Toon Army to weigh in with an offer before too long.
Gokdemir told the News of the World: "Newcastle are serious and we're waiting for an official offer."
Hassan is not presently a popular figure at Besiktas having been ordered to train with the youth team after arriving back late from the African Cup of Nations.
