Newcastle fans take to Twitter to laugh off Milad Mohammadi rumours

According to The Daily Mail, Newcastle United have been offered Iranian left-back Milad Mohammadi by Akhmat Grozny. The 25-year-old left-back could be used to solve Rafa Benitez’s crisis at the back, as Paul Dummett is currently the Magpies only recognised left-back and has had his injury problems this season.

Most fans won’t have heard of Milad Mohammadi before, but they will all be aware of him. The Iranian is the man who famously tried, and failed, to pull off a roly-poly throw-in at the World Cup before instantly becoming a hit on social media for his efforts. However, he’ll be hoping any move to Newcastle can be more successful than his attempted long-throw back over the summer.

The defender’s contract with Akhmat Grozny is up in the summer, and that’s why these links have come about, however, it’s hard to see a way in which Newcastle pull this one off unless they’re the only interested club, seeing as they very rarely pip anybody to anyone. This transfer, though, is one that looks right up Mike Ashley’s street as it would be a cut-price deal for a player in a league that isn’t notorious for paying massive wages.

The Magpies have little faith in signing anyone and that extends to this Iranian left-back who’s out of contract in the summer.
