Football Insider are reporting that Kyle Scott will undergo a medical at Newcastle United.
Kyle Scott was said to be signing for Newcastle in a report in the Sun early last month. That report stated that Scott would join Newcastle on a free once his deal at Chelsea expired on June 30th.
Pete O’Rourke with Football Insider has written the following:
Midfielder Kyle Scott is set to undergo a Newcastle United medical and complete a move to the club in the next 48 hours, Football Insider can reveal.
A Newcastle source has told Football Insider that Scott, 21, is poised to sign a three-year contract after accepting the club’s offer to join on a free transfer.
The U20 US international can play both defensive and attacking midfield positions. But he would most likely be one for the future.
He is just 21 years old but has not had much experience beyond the Chelsea reserves.
He was on loan at second division Dutch side SC Telstar for the first part of last season but that loan was ultimately terminated. He had made 14 appearances for the club.
This would be the first summer signing for Newcastle and if true, could happen while the club remain without a manager.
Steve Bruce made comments earlier today that a decision on his future depended on both clubs reaching a compromise and that something could be decided in the next couple of days.
