Tosin Adarabioyo to snub Manchester United and Chelsea for Newcastle move!

Newcastle United

Fulham’s Tosin Adarabioyo had refused to extend his contract at the Craven Cottage. Upon being on the market for free, Adarabioyo is now closing in on a move to Newcastle!

Chelsea and Manchester United were also linked heavily with the center back. However, as the reports suggest, the Magpies are now in pole position to sign the 26-year old.

The Nigerian is claimed to be interested by Newcastle’s project under Eddie Howe’s management. The center-back is considering a move to St. James Park, snubbing the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.

Why Adarabioyo to Newcastle?

The 26-year old’s arrival would strengthen Newcastle’s defense and add some much needed squad depth. The Nigerian is well versed with top flight Premier League football with over 100 appearances to his name. Tosin’s versatility to play with a back four or back three makes him a key addition.

The Nigerian, despite his young age, has shown glimpses of leadership. This could be of vital significance in a young Newcastle squad. Also, the availability of a skilled center back at such a bargain who might be entering his prime is a chance no one would want to pass on.

Bolstering defense: Kelly to partner with Adarabioyo?

Newcastle are also hunting for Bournemouth’s Lloyd Kelly. Therefore, increasing their defensive options in aim to bid for the top six next season.

Fabrizio Romano has updated on the situation:

“Newcastle want to sign both Lloyd Kelly and Tosin Adarabioyo as free agents… plan progressing very well and fast.

Kelly, priority target as #NUFC are optimistic to make it happen very early in the summer. Talks also progressing with Adarabioyo as he’s set to leave Fulham.”

With a strong core of young players emerging, adding experienced figures like Adarabioyo and Kelly could be the missing piece for the Magpies to truly challenge for a European spot next season.
