Newcastle in hunt for new midfielder with Leicester star Youri Tielemans top transfer target

NEWCASTLE are still in the hunt for a new midfielder before the transfer window closes. 

The Magpies have been interested in Leicester’s Youri Tielemans all summer but, as of this morning, a move looks unlikely.

Newcastle are keen on Leicester star Youri Tielemans

Tielemans, 25, has just one-year left on his deal with the Foxes.

The Belgian international has been the subject of interest from numerous Premier League clubs, including Arsenal.

But a switch to the Newcastle looks unlikely before tonight’s 11pm transfer deadline.

There was interest in a loan swoop for Ainsley Maitland-Niles, but he is now expected to join Southampton on a deal until the end of the season.

Eddie Howe has bolstered his ranks this summer with the £58million record signing of Alexander Isak, plus Sven Botman and Nick Pope, as well as making Matt Targett’s loan move a permanent one.

The Saudi-funded Magpies have spent £117m in total.

Going the other way, goalkeeper Martin Dubravka is expected to join Manchester United on loan today with a view to a permanent deal, while Matty Longstaff is also set to leave. 

He is poised to join League One Barnsley on loan.

The Geordie, 22, burst onto the scene with a debut goal against Manchester United in 2019 but he has played just five Prem games since the start of the 2020-21 season. 

Fellow fringe player Federico Fernandez is also on way out, with Spanish side Elche closing in on his signature. 

The experienced centre-back, 33, is a popular figure on Tyneside but injuries have restricted his chances under Howe as he fell behind Botman, Dan Burn, Fabian Schar and Jamaal Lascelles in the pecking order.
