The Mail are reporting today that Newcastle are interested in Leicester City’s 23 year-old Welsh International winger Tom Lawrence.
Since Tom signed for Leicester in the summer of 2014 he has been on loan at various clubs – Rotherham, Blackburn Rovers, Cardiff City and currently Ipswich Town.
Lawrence has been in decent form at Ipswich and he is certainly the right age.
Tom Lawrence – Leicester City winger
Tom joined Manchester United from Everton at the age of eight and came through the Manchester United Academy.
Burnley and Sunderland are also said to be interested in the winger and maybe Lawrence is a back-up in case we cannot get first choice Andros Townsend through the door this month.
The Telegraph were reporting last night that Newcastle have moved on from Andros – so let’s hope that’s not true.
The 4 times capped Welsh International did not make the Welsh squad for Euro 2016 Championships and is available for just £1M, but we wonder if he’s good enough?
Tom played only once for Manchester United and with all his various loan spells he’s still made 99 first appearances with 15 goals.
We assume the only reason we would bring him in is if we cannot get Andros though the door, although we have also been linked with Swansea winger Modou Barrow.
The Chronicle are reporting this morning there’s definite interest from Newcastle in Barrow.
