Newcastle United: Magpies set to lose out on Axel Tuanzebe -Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United are reportedly set to lose out on the signing of Axel Tuanzebe to one of their rivals in the Premier League.

The Lowdown: Newcastle were favourites

The St. James’ Park faithful were reportedly in pole position to sign Tuanzebe not so long ago, with Steve Bruce being an admirer of the player who he has previously worked with.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this pub quiz... Against which team did Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer famously fight each other?

It is reportedly ‘expected’ that he will now join Dean Smith’s team, who is keen to sign him as cover for both centre-back and right-back.

The Verdict: Shame

It would be a real shame for the Magpies to lose out on the signing of Tuanzebe, especially to one of their rivals in the top flight.

Described as ‘outstanding’ by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after an impressive display in the UEFA Europa League against Granada back in April, he is capable of performing at the highest level, having also racked up a fair amount of experience in playing in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).

Nonetheless, his added versatility would have been very useful to have in Bruce’s squad, but it looks as if they are going to miss out on the chance to sign him.
