The Mail is reporting that Newcastle’s 21-year-old striker Ivan Toney is all set to move to League One club Wigan Athletic and is currently having a medical at Wigan.
Newcastle is ready to loan out Toney, so he gets first team games next season which will help greatly in his development.
Toney has been impressive for the U23 side at Newcastle, and he could yet have a future at the club, but he must bang those goals in while he’s on loan.
Toney was not surprisingly in high demand, and Scunthorpe United wanted to sign him on loan again this season, but it looks like Wigan have won the race to sign him.
Toney joined us back in the summer of 2015 when we signed him from Northampton Town, and he has so far made four appearances for the Newcastle first team.
But Ivan is not part of Rafa Benitez’ plans for the coming season with the first team.
Here are the ins and outs at Newcastle so far this summer.
