The Northern Echo claims the Magpies have made a loan enquiry about Ethan Ampadu, with the Chelsea youngster expected to leave Stamford Bridge in the next two weeks.
It had been reported that the club were also weighing up a move for Chelsea’s Malang Sarr. However, as Premier League rules state clubs can only sign one player on loan from each club, this new development suggests that Ampadu is the preferred target.
Here’s what these Newcastle fans had to say…
Judging from this reaction, a certain section of the Newcastle support would be none too pleased to see Ampadu arrive at their club.
Perhaps a loan deal for Sarr would go down a little better with the Magpies faithful. With not long left in the transfer market, all will be revealed soon enough.
