Hamza Choudhury’s move from Leicester to Newcastle could now be OFF – Reports

Joe Willock may be set to sign, but both Sky Sports and The Athletic claim fellow loan target Hamza Choudhury now looks set to stay at Leicester City.

Steve Bruce confirmed his interest in the 23-year-old on Friday and is believed to have been waiting for a decision from Leicester for ‘weeks’ – however it seems they will now keep the tough tackling midfielder at the King Power Stadium after failing to land potential replacement Nathaniel Chalobah.

As explained below, Watford would only allow Chalobah to join Leicester if they secured a replacement – and they wanted our very own Matty Longstaff to arrive in his place. However, the NUFC midfielder was not keen on a move to Vicarage Road and therefore stopped the potential transfer triangle from going through.

Here’s what Chris Waugh (The Athletic) and Keith Downie (Sky Sports) have had to say on it all:

Will we look for a late alternative? Could Leicester look elsewhere and keep the deal alive? Or will it be Willock or nothing for Newcastle United between now and 11pm?

Who knows, but time is running out – and NUFC have left it late!

  1. why didnt matty longstaff not go to Watford to play some football because i just cant see bruce giving him another game this season, maybe he fancied not doing anything except train and collect his wages for the next 6 months probably the same goes for his brother


  2. I wholly agree. I personally think that it was all a PR stunt by Bruce. All he had to do was sanction the loan for Longstaff which would have seen the domino effect commence. So we are still stuck with the chuckle brothers Sean & Matty who are both a million miles away from being Premier League footballers
