Newcastle are believed to be planning a move for Pele, according to reports in Portugal. The Magpies have targeted the Belenenses defender as they
look to bolster their rearguard for next season. St James' Park boss Graeme Souness has made a new central defender one of his top priorities as he
seeks a partner for Jean-Alain Boumsong.
Newcastle have been tracking Pele for some time and watched him in action on several occasions last term. The 27-year-old is nothing like his famous
Brazilian namesake as he is an uncompromising defender.
