Newcastle United: Luke Edwards reveals Todd Cantwell interest

Newcastle United: Luke Edwards reveals Todd Cantwell interest -Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Luke Edwards has now revealed fresh interest from Newcastle United in Todd Cantwell.

The Lowdown: Lost his way

Cantwell has lost his way somewhat this season, making just eight appearances in the Premier League so far, and he has not always been a starter (Transfermarkt).

It should be questioned why he is not getting more game time, given the talent he clearly possesses, as shown by the 12 goals and nine assists that he managed combined in his last Premier League and Championship campaigns (Transfermarkt).

Should Newcastle sign Cantwell?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Former Norwich City striker Dean Ashton even went as far as to claim that he was ‘incredible‘ last term, as he was instrumental in guiding them to the Championship title.

Nonetheless, with his lack of game time this season, Cantwell could well be on the move.

The Latest: Fresh interest

As per Edwards, the St. James’ Park faithful’s interest is ‘firming up’, and ‘sources said last night (Thursday)’ that they had been ‘hoping’ to keep it on the low.

Nonetheless, it looks like a potential deal to keep an eye on as the weeks progress.

The Verdict: Not a priority

Although Cantwell would be a valuable member to add to the squad, midfield should not be a priority for the North East club right now.

With no fewer than 42 goals conceded in the top flight so far this campaign, the joint-highest in the top flight along with the bottom-placed Canaries, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium should be looking to improve the defence further first of all, following the arrival of Kieran Trippier.

Also, while Cantwell has shone in NCFC’s team before, he has not exactly impressed this term with the opportunities that he has had, with no goals or assists in eight matches, and so the Tyneside outfit should be looking elsewhere for now.
