According to Sky Sports journalist Keith Downie, Newcastle United are interested in signing Hamza Choudhury this month.
The Magpies are struggling badly in the Premier League, and Steve Bruce is keen to make a few additions to his squad this month.
Bolstering the midfield is a priority for Bruce and the Magpies are looking to sign the 23-year-old midfielder from Leicester City in the January window.
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers admitted earlier this month that the homegrown midfielder has found it difficult to break into his squad this season. He suggested that the player’s future will be assessed this month.
Downie has suggested to Sky Sports that Bruce wants a central midfielder and he is interested in signing Choudhury on loan. However, the Magpies are not alone in the race.
