Sivasspor have joined the race to sign Newcastle United midfielder Henri Saivet this summer.

The Senegal international is expected to leave the Magpies in the coming weeks after failing to break into Rafa Benitez’s squad.

According to the daily Turkish newspaper Fanatik, the Turkish Super Lig club want to sign Saivet again this summer.
