According to the Mail, THREE Championship clubs are showing late interest in Christian Atsu.
This comes from Simon Jones, who claims that Fulham, Nottingham Forest and Blackburn are all trying to complete a deadline day deal for the Ghanaian winger.
The 28-year-old is believed to be one of two or three senior players who could seal a move away from St James’ Park today, with the club also aiming to move both Ki Sung-yeung and Henri Saivet on.
West Brom have also been linked, but it seems they have plenty competition from their Championship rivals – although it’s not yet known if the former Chelsea man would leave on loan or on a permanent deal.
Atsu has featured 22 times this season, starting 8 times, but his place in Steve Bruce’s squad is under threat following the arrivals of Valentino Lazaro and Danny Rose.
He’s chipped in with 4 assists this season – a tally NO Newcastle player has bettered so far across 2019/20 – however it may suit all parties to move him on.
One to watch between now and 11pm?
