Mario Balotelli has been spotted in the Buttercrane Shopping centre today sparking rumours that he is visiting Newry Showgrounds to finalise a deal to take him from Liverpool to Newry.
Balotelli who was expected to sign for French side Nice has again surprised to football world and appears to have opted for Newry instead.
Bolotelli’s agent Mino Raiola told Newry Spud:
“Newry seems to be the option we are going for. Mario has been in the city today and he loves the people and the sights. We have already rented a home for him in Derrybeg so it will be a short commute to the Showgrounds for training.”
We tried to speak to a Newry City media representative but couldn’t as they don’t actually have one.
