Magpies eye Greek midfielder Thanasis Androutsos

Newcastle United is one of several clubs currently tracking Greece Under-21 midfielder Thanasis Androutsos.

According to, the Magpies sent a scout to Camp Nou on Wednesday as Androutsos' Olympiakos side went down 3-1 to Barcelona in Champions League Group D.

The 20-year-old played the full 90 minutes as the Greek champions struggled to impose themselves on Barca, who were reduced to 10 men when Gerard Pique was sent off before half-time.

Everton, FC Koln, Wolfsburg, Sampdoria, Atalanta and Villarreal are also understood to be following the midfielder's progress during his breakthrough season and had scouts present this week.

Androutos, who has scored four goals in six Greece Under-21 appearances, extended his contract with the Piraeus club through to 2022 back in pre-season.
