Luke Edwards, with the Telegraph, is reporting that Newcastle and Hull are still very far apart on reaching any agreement over Jarrod Bowen.
Newcastle United reach impasse with Hull over fee for Jarrod Bowen https://t.co/coMWrtBmrD via @telefootball I know we have heard this sort of thing before but I’m not sure he’s worth £22m. Still chance it’s could happen but not at that price #nufc

Last week Edwards reported that Newcastle were preparing a firm bid for the 23-year-old. However, it seems the valuation of the player is too far apart for any agreement to happen at this moment.
Hull City’s asking price for their star player remains over £20m while Newcastle are only willing to offer £12m plus performance-based add ons.
Newcastle feel that with Bowen having just one year remaining on his contract at Hull this summer, paying Hull’s asking price this month would not be good value.
We are very disappointed if this is the best offer that Newcastle are willing to make. Surely, they can start with at least £15m upfront.
Hull, however, also have to be reasonable with the player. Bowen has been offered an improved contract this weekend, but there’s little reason for him to extend with the Tigers this month.
Hopefully, Newcastle and Hull will continue to negotiate and are willing to compromise on their current stances.
