Ex-Newcastle defender Chancel Mbemba will not be given a new contract by FC Porto as he has lied about his age for his entire career, according to reports.
The centre-back, who played over 50 times for Newcastle between 2015 and 2018, was previously believed to be 27 years old – but according to Portuguese outlet Corriero de Manha, he has told his close friends he was born in 1990, which makes him 31.
Mbemba’s age has been questioned for many years after a 2013 investigation revealed four different birth dates were brought up throughout his career. The earliest year of birth speculated was August 1988, which would make him 33 now.
