The Mail are reporting that Newcastle are considering a deadline day swoop for Arsenal’s England Intentional left-back Kieran Gibbs.
Newcastle are trying to get a left-sided defender in today, after we missed out on both Atletico Madrid left-back Guilherme Siqueira and Valencia’s 26-year-old defender Lucas Orban yesterday.
Kieran Gibbs – can Newcastle get this player in on loan?
The 26-year-old Englishman has been kept out of the Arsenal side this season by Spanish International Nacho Monreal and he is desperate for first team football so he has some chance of making Roy Hodgson’s England squad for the Euro 2016 finals in France in June.
There have been rumors that Newcastle were interested in Gibbs over the last couple of days, so it’s not that surprising that Newcastle would go in today and try to get Kieran on loan.
With Arsenal in the race for the Premier League title it will largely depend on whether manager Arsene Wenger will allow Kieran to leave on loan, or whether he needs him at the Emirates to help with their title drive.
Kieran has been at Arsenal all his career and made his debut way back in 2007 when he started a League Cup match against Sheffield United in that October when he had just turned 18.
Gibbs has played 202 times for the Gunners with 6 goals and he has 10 full caps for England.
He would be an excellent loan signing for Newcastle – if we can get him.
