According to new reports, Newcastle United may be closing in on a couple of new signings today.
After he beat Sky Sports to news that Bruno Guimaraes could undergo a medical later today ahead of a £30m move from Lyon, journalist Peter O’Rourke claims we are also in ‘advanced talks’ to sign Brighton’s 6ft 7′ defender, Dan Burn.
The former ESPN reporter claims that a £10m deal is being discussed between the two clubs, with the 29-year-old believed to be keen on a return to Tyneside as a boyhood NUFC fan who was born in Blyth.
Burn was on the club’s books as an 11-year-old and has since played for Darlington, Wigan, Fulham and Brighton, with him a versatile, left-footed defender who is comfortable playing at centre-back and at left-back.
After weeks of frustration, are Newcastle United really closing in one two signings in one day? Time will tell, but it sounds like we’ve finally made some real progress!
