Newcastle are looking to make yet another addition at U23 level after upping their interest in Bristol City teenager Reuben McAllister.
We’ve been told that the 16-year-old attacking midfielder has been invited up to Tyneside to hold talks with the club ahead of a potential move to St James’ Park.
The youngster is expected to visit with his family to check out the area and speak with the club, who appear determined to add a new wave of exciting talents to the Academy this summer.
McAllister has enjoyed an impressive rise through Bristol City’s youth ranks over the past 18 months, catching the eye of several Premier League scouts after making his debut for the Robins’ U23 side at the age of 15.
He is the son of former Scotland international Jamie McAllister – who is currently the assistant manager at Hibernian – and has also attracted interest from the likes of Aston Villa, Rangers and Celtic, according to reports.
With Galway United defender Alex Murphy already through the door and Kilmarnock’s Charlie McArthur also close to joining, it looks like McAllister could be another one to watch in our bid to boost our U23 ranks this summer.
