The Lowdown: Darlow out of favour
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?
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.
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.
