Report – Newcastle Now Interested In Manchester City Central Defender

The Manchester Evening News are reporting that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is going to make a decision on the immediate future of their talented 19 year-old Nigerian defender Tosin Adarabioyo.

The 6ft 5ins center-back has played for the England U16, U17, U18 and U19 sides and he has already made four appearances for the City first team.

It’s not clear whether the tall defender is in Guardiola’s future plans but we’ll find out soon enough.

However, since the teenager recently agreed a new deal for £40K/week wages, it’s very unlikely he will be sold and a loan deal will most likely happen.

Newcastle are said to be interested in the player.

We need to bring in a number of top youngsters who can then be developed as potential first teamers of the future.

Fulham, Sheffield Wednesday and Preston North End in the Championship are the other clubs interested in signing Tosin Adarabioyo on a season-long loan deal.

The 19 year-old has come through the Youth Academy at City after joining his home town team back in 2005 as a 5 year-old.

Wonder how tall he was then?

If it’s only a loan deal for the player, which seems almost certain, we’re not sure Rafa would be too interested.

It would be unlikely the right-footed teenager would get many games at center-back next season for Newcastle, because of his lack of experience in the PL.

At the moment we have Lascelles, Clark, new boy Lejeune and Mbemba fighting it out for the two central defense starting places at Newcastle.

And the loan deal would be without an option to buy and we just don’t think Newcastle get much out of those deals.

But City would probably love for Rafa Benitez to coach Adarabioyo for a year.

What do you think?

    £40K a week at 19 – there’s the problem

    Sigurdsson at 50m. He’s a good player, no doubt, but he’s not 50m good surely? You can tell Everton aren’t used to having big money to spend, the way they’re chucking it around. Unfortunately, their stupidity is dripping down to the rest of the league. They might pay it, but they’ll regret it. You want far better for that money imo.

    ‘The best the club ever operated in the Ashley era was under lawyer /chairman Chris Mort’

    Ye jest, surely? Wasn’t it honest Mort who admitted to being party to the lies Keegan was told and buying players over his head?

    Sorry to be picky but…..

    £50m might seem a lot but it’s the market that determines a players worth. Like it or not, that’s the way it is.

    I did, and i have replied again last thread. It’s become a circular discussion though, so I suggest we move on to something new.

    Loch, and there’s the problem mate. One or two clubs throwing money about. I don’t want this guy on principle. Let him rot in City’s reserves and let them pay silly wages to him whilst he does. Would he even get a game for us? Probably not, so why tie up 40k a week so he can sit on his arse? Keep him.

    Perhaps Sigurdsson has realised that the future’s bright the future’s Rafa
