Hamza Choudhury’s proposed move to Newcastle United has ‘broken down’, according to some breaking news from Sky Sports.
They state that Steve Bruce was ‘desperate’ to bring the midfielder to St James’ Park – having also tried to sign him in January – however the two clubs failed to reach an agreement ahead of tonight’s 11pm deadline.
Sky Sports claim that Leicester even offered a host of compromises when it came to the 23-year-old’s wages, yet we still couldn’t get this over the line.
Read the damning Tuesday night update here, all but confirming we’re now closed for business with less than an hour remaining until the summer window slams shut:
What a complete and utter shambles.
Bringing in Joe Willock may have been a positive move earlier this month, however we will now head into the first half of the 2021/22 season without the centre-back, holding midfielder and back up striker we so badly needed.
As ever, Mike Ashley is gambling with our Premier League status.
I’d feel sorry for Steve Bruce, but he knew what he was getting into. Sadly, this is what happens when a ‘yes man’ happy to toe the line meets a completely uninterested Mike Ashley.
