The report claims that Newcastle manager has extensively scouted Joe Worrall and is considering a move for the defender.

Newcastle are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

According to Tribalfootball, “Newcastle United are eyeing Nottingham Forest defender Joe Worrall. Worrall, 22, has impressed at the City Ground this season and Steve Bruce is a big admirer of the centre-back, says The Sun. He is eyeing a January move for Worrall on the cheap as the Forest youth graduate is out of contract in the summer. Bruce reckons the no-nonsense defender can help shore up his backline for the second half of the season, regardless of where his team are in the table. Worrall has been a Premier League target in the past for both Burnley and Crystal Palace but he refused to leave his boyhood club.”


If Newcastle are genuinely interested, a deal would not be impossible to complete.

Stylistically, Worrall would be a great fit in Newcastle.

Newcastle fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

It will be interesting to see whether Newcastle will make their move during the winter transfer window.
