NUFC told to activate relegated star’s £10m release clause by former Toon defender

Back in May, The Athletic revealed that we were considering a move for Tosin Adarabioyo after discovering that a relegation release clause existed in the Fulham star’s contract.

The Daily Mail followed this up just a few weeks ago, claiming that this clause will allow him to leave Craven Cottage for £10m this summer.

Now, former Newcastle United defender Steve Howey has talked up a potential move for the 6ft 5′ defender who was one of the shining lights in an otherwise dismal season under Scott Parker.

Here’s what Howey told Transfer Tavern after naming the 23-year-old as a player he’d like to see Steve Bruce look at, feeling we may be tempted to raid the relegated clubs once again this summer:

“Normally what tends to happen is clubs that get relegated, other clubs will pick the carcass off it and they just pick the best players.

Look at what happened to Bournemouth last year, for example.

“Decent player. Could he perform even better with some solid players around him? You know, possibly.”

He fits the bill in terms of being a talented young player available at a reasonable fee, however it remains to be seen if a £10m move would fit in with the modest budget Steve Bruce is believed to have been handed this summer.

After all, recent reports suggest we’re not being drawn into a bidding war for alleged top target Kristoffer Ajer, seeing us be linked with a cut-price move for former Sunderland loanee Dion Sanderson instead.

Would you like to see us activate Adarabioyo’s release clause if we had the funds to do so?

  1. Steve Howey is not the oracle, he also isn’t a bundle of football knowledge.
    The man is sat at home spouting out rubbish about non existent events, I would go so far as saying untruths.
    We have 4 central defenders which shows he knows **** all.

    Heaven forbid the lad should actually express and opinion, you know, just like you are doing.
    And I’m guessing he’s played more top class games than you, so that might suggest that his **** all towers above yours.

    And Olly, how do you “active” a clause?

    And you’re attacking him for having a opinion as well but in your mind your attack will be different as you’re right no doubt
    Gotta love hypocrisy
