January move for Hull star Jarrod Bowen takes fresh twist?

According to the Shields Gazette, Newcastle United may be forced to shelve their interest in Hull City star Jarrod Bowen ahead of the January transfer window.

This comes from Miles Starforth, who not only claims that Steve Bruce left Hull on bad terms with owner Assem Allam – suggesting that could complicate our attempt to sign their best player – but also reports that the signing of a midfielder has been prioritised by the club.

Not only that, talk of Bowen leaving at a cut-price fee due to his contract ‘expiring’ next summer also seems to be premature, with the Tigers expected to activate their option to extend his deal by a further 12 months.

With this in mind, Hull are expected to demand £20m plus for the forward – a fee we were unwilling to pay for a second tier player over the summer according to reports.

Bowen is arguably the Championship’s best player, with 11 goals already this season and 22 last term from the right-hand side, however the Gazette suggests a midfielder is Bruce’s ‘priority’.

Considering the lack of goal threat we’ve shown at times this season, surely this would be a big mistake?

  1. Can’t score goals so let’s not buy a guy who is and get another midfield player

    Numb nuts

    Defence is ok midfield if he plays the right midfielders we have ok

    Forwards yes this is where we are struggling

    When I played if you didn’t score goals you didn’t win games

    Simple this football game
