Newcastle consider move for Leonardo Koutris

Newcastle United will be desperate to return to winning ways after suffering a crushing defeat at the hands of West Ham United on Saturday. 

The Magpies were starting to build up ahead of steam prior to Saturday’s defeat, but they’ll now have to reconsider things in the hope that they rediscover their form in no time at all.

Interestingly, it appears as if the Tyneside club are already looking at potential January signings, as according to The Sunday People (02/12/ page 47) (via HITC), Newcastle are considering a move for Leonardo Koutris.

Newcastle United are considering making a January bid for Greek defender Leonardo Koutris.

The 23-year-old currently plays for Olympiacos having joined the club during the 2017 summer window. And the full-back was recently rewarded for his impressive form by being handed his international debut.

After making a good impression on the Magpies’ representatives, it comes as no surprise that the club are contemplating a January offer.

THE VERDICT:

It’s good to see that Ashley and Benitez are looking to invest in the right areas.

Newcastle United could do with bringing in a full-back in January, with Paul Dummett suffering from injury and Javier Manquillo looking less than convincing in the side.

The Tyneside club’s representatives must have been impressed by what they have seen of Koutris as they’re already considering a January bid for him.
