megane 97 engine seized

Hi guys I'm new to this forum so please be patient with me.
The problem is this:- I bought a 1997 Megane 3 weeks ago and had a problem with the engine chugging. Changed plugs and leads and it ran fine until yesterday when it chugged again then cut out.
When i tried to start it up again i was just getting a click like with a jammed starter. Had it looked at by local mechaninic and was told the engine has seized and therefore needs a new engine.
Could anyone clarify if indeed a new engine is req. or can it be repaired, and if it does need a new one any idea how much it will cost for a salvage.
I do have a Renault 19 1.4 (same size engine) on an M reg, could this poss be fitted.
Thanks guys.
