The Chronicle journalist Lee Ryder has gone on to reveal that Kevin Mbabu is set to depart Newcastle United this summer.
Following much speculation regarding his future, Kevin Mbabu put pen to paper on a new two year deal with Newcastle United this summer and it has to be said that the fans were happy to see the Swiss defender stay put at St. James’ Park.
Despite extending his stay at Newcastle though, it is not certain that the 21-year-old will be earning regular minutes on the pitch during the upcoming Championship campaign due to intense competition for places at the club.
As a result, a loan move had been touted as a possibility for Mbabu and now reliable Chronicle journalist, Lee Ryder, has gone on to reveal that the full-back is on the verge of agreeing a temporary switch away from Newcastle.
Ryder did not reveal the actual destination for Mbabu but stated that the deal is close to completion at the moment.
He posted on social media website, Twitter,
#nufc could also be close to agreeing an outgoing loan deal for Kevin Mbabu.
