Is Hull City’s Harry Maguire on his way to NUFC?

Sky Sports report this afternoon that Hull City have received an unnamed bid for rumoured NUFC target Harry Maguire, claiming that the centre-back ‘close’ to completing a deal to leave the club.

It has been widely reported this summer that Rafa Benitez is a big fan of Maguire, with the Chronicle confirming that Newcastle have watched the 24-year-old defender on ‘several’ occasions last season.

It is no secret that Benitez is keen to add at least one centre-back to his ranks this summer, and after missing out on Ruben Semedo and talk of Florian Lejeune’s move to Newcastle going quiet, today’s news has fuelled speculation that Rafa has made his move for Maguire.

Maguire was one of the few shining lights in Hull’s relegation season, with the 24-year-old defender showing a blend of no nonsense defending combined with a surprising air of confidence on the ball and admirable leadership qualities.

It is also worth noting that Sky claim a bid has also been tabled for Hull left-back Andrew Robertson – a player Newcastle have also been credited with an interest in (although who haven’t they been linked with already this summer!)

It is well documented that Newcastle are admirers of Maguire, so this could be one to watch..

One thought on “Is Hull City’s Harry Maguire on his way to NUFC?

  1. I hope not hes an absolute shambles of a player. Hull has exactly 0 shining lights. The whole team were rubbish. The same as Newcastle last season.
