Newcastle United: Steve Bruce wants Karl Darlow

Newcastle United: Steve Bruce wants Karl Darlow -Newcastle United News

Steve Bruce is reportedly now ready to raid Newcastle United in the summer by signing Karl Darlow for West Brom.

The Lowdown: Darlow out of favour

The goalkeeper has largely been out of favour at St James’ Park this term, having played just eight times in the Premier League and not featuring since November (Transfermarkt).

This is in contrast to last season, when he played 26 times in the top flight, and he even kept current number one Martin Dubravka on the bench after some impressive displays.

Former Tottenham and England goalkeeper Paul Robinson even went as far as to call the 31-year-old “exceptional“, but it seems as if the Slovakian is firmly the number one now under Eddie Howe.

The Latest: Darlow wanted by Albion

As per The Sun, Bruce is now ready to raid his former club for Darlow this summer, and West Brom could get him on loan should Newcastle bring in another goalkeeper.

Does Darlow have a future at Newcastle?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, the Magpies would prefer to sell him on a permanent deal in order to help raise funds for new arrivals.

The Verdict: Time to sell

Given that he is now 31 years of age and is clearly not first choice under Howe, it is perhaps the right time for Newcastle to sell Darlow.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

The 6 foot 3 colossus was impressive when called upon last term, but the board may want to bring in a new and established goalkeeper to replace Dubravka, with Manchester United ace Dean Henderson the latest such name to be linked with a move to Tyneside.

Nonetheless, Darlow needs to be playing more regularly, and he will probably not get much game-time if he stays at St James’ Park.
