Leicester City midfielder Hamza Choudhury is reportedly keen on joining Newcastle United on loan.
The Chronicle have said that both Choudhury and Newcastle want to bring a move to fruition in the remaining few days in the transfer window.
Newcastle hold a long-term interest in Choudhury.
The Magpies wanted to land him in January, but the Foxes didn’t want to sanction a move as they couldn’t get a replacement in.
It is stated that there is a ‘willingness’ from both parties for a deal to get done.
Any deal, the Chronicle say, would have to be a loan.
Choudhury remains low down in the pecking order at the King Power Stadium.
The Englishman has yet to feature for the Foxes this season.
At the moment, he has Wilfred Ndida, Nampalys Mendy and new signing Boubakary Soumare ahead of him.
He has so far been named as a substitute for all four of Leicester’s games, but Brendan Rodgers has not turned to him.
Surely, therefore, there is a reasonable chance of something happening.
Get him in and shake things up
Newcastle’s midfield is in need of a shake up.
Willock coming back to St. James’ is obviously brilliant news, but another enforcer-type player needs to follow.
It seems Choudhury is keen to come, and Newcastle cannot fumble the deal if that is the case.
This is a player that seemingly years for a new challenge and is probably looking to prove himself.
