Newcastle United: Magpies hold Callum Hudson-Odoi ‘interest’

Newcastle United: Magpies hold Callum Hudson-Odoi ‘interest’ -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United reportedly now hold an ‘interest’ in signing Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Lowdown: Not in squad

The 21-year-old was left out of the squad by Thomas Tuchel for Chelsea’s 1-0 win at Everton on Saturday evening, casting doubt over his future at Stamford Bridge.

He has only completed the full 90 minutes eight times under the German over the past two seasons, which suggests that Tuchel does not really fancy him.

The Latest: Newcastle ‘interest’

Taking to Twitter, journalist Pete O’Rourke has revealed that Newcastle, along with Southampton, hold an ‘interest’ in signing Hudson-Odoi, who has ‘told’ Chelsea that he wants to leave in search of regular first-team football.

The reporter tweeted: “Callum Hudson-Odoi has told Chelsea that he wants to leave the club in search of regular first-team football amid interest from the likes of Southampton and Newcastle.”

The Verdict: Avoid

While Hudson-Odoi may be deemed an exciting prospective signing given that he is just 21 years of age, this is a deal that Newcastle should be looking to avoid.

The winger failed to show any consistency last season, with just three goals and six assists in 28 matches across all competitions (Transfermarkt), also receiving heavy criticism from Magpies legend Alan Shearer for some of his performances.

Should Newcastle sign Hudson-Odoi?





He also has a bad injury record and earns a whopping £120,000 per week at Chelsea, more than any player at St James’ Park, so signing him would be too risky for the Tynesiders and they should be looking at other targets.
