It had been reported earlier this week that the Magpies could be interested in the Wales international after chief scout Steve Nickson was pictured watching Bournemouth against Hull City, with Lee Ryder claiming Brooks could have been the player Nickson was watching, however, Sky Sports’ Downie poured cold water on that rumour, stating that the club weren’t in for Brooks.
Do you think Newcastle should sign Choudhury?
The Magpies have only managed to bring in one senior signing this summer for the first team which was Joe Willock, who arrived from Arsenal for £25 million, following his loan spell on Tyneside in the second half of the previous league campaign.
What have these Newcastle fans had to say?
“This is the first I’ve heard of this and I’ve already been let down before I could even get my hopes up”
“Boycott the ground enough is enough! Mike Ashley out!”
“Course we’re not Keith – the only thing we’re competing for is a relegation spot… yet again!”
Newcastle’s squad can be perceived as being weaker than at the end of last season having brought Willock back from Arsenal, as well as having seen Andy Carroll leave as a free agent and Matty Longstaff depart on loan to Aberdeen.
