With Newcastle reportedly having some funds available to add to the development squad over the next few windows, we are likely to continue to be linked with some exciting young prospects. Yesterday, Chris Waugh proclaimed that Newcastle were following some youngsters in England, Scotland, and France.
One of those could be West Brom’s 18-year-old forward Rayhaan Tulloch. There is a report in the Daily Mail that says Newcastle are part of a Premier League quartet tracking the England U-18 international. The other three clubs are Aston Villa, Bournemouth, and our Sunday opponent Southampton.
Tulloch can play as a winger, striker, or second striker and has appeared in all of those positions for West Brom’s u-23s this season. In 9 Premier League Two appearances, he has racked up 4 goals and 2 assists.
Rayhaan Tulloch– Newcastle tracking 18-year-old forward
The starlet has been with the Baggies since the age of nine and made his debut in the FA Cup this past January at Brighton. He was also briefly involved with the first-team in December of 2017 under former Newcastle manager Alan Pardew when he was just sixteen.
The pacy striker is highly regarded by the Championship club, who don’t want to lose another one of their prized assets. They recently lost 16-year-old Louie Barry to Barcelona and 17-year-old Morgan Rogers to Manchester City.
Leeds, Stoke, and Wigan are also registered with an interest in Tulloch. As are League One’s Sunderland, whose 1-0 loss at Gillingham has them in 11th. However, Sunderland’s interest is limited to a potential January loan move.
Rayhaan Tulloch will turn 19 next month and could be a solid addition to our Academy. Newcastle will reportedly have scouts watching him on Monday when West Brom take on Manchester United in Premier League Two action.
