There has been numerous centre-backs linked with Newcastle in past few months.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Newcastle United are looking to loan Manchester United centre-back Axel Tuanzebe.
The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The England international has one year left (United have option for a further year) on his current contract which expires in 2022.
The centre-back has featured in 37 matches for Manchester United.
The 23-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England. Tuanzebe has represented England at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 11 caps.
His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including Newcastle.
Steve Bruce wants to sign a new centre-back and Tuanzebe is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
Bruce is a long term admirer of Tuanzebe and believes he can get the most out of the England international.
Newcastle are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The Manchester United centre-back heavily relies on his ability to read the game. It is coupled with his sensible tackling and an excellent sense of positioning, allowing him to repel most of the danger in the defensive third.
According to the report, “Newcastle United are favourites to sign Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe. Chronicle Live reports Newcastle are in pole position to sign Tuanzebe on loan. The 23-year-old’s camp are ‘delighted’ by the interest from Steve Bruce’s side. A deal is yet to be done but it’s understood that the Red Devils aren’t against the idea of loaning their centre-back out.”

Newcastle will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Tuanzebe to join the club.
It is claimed that United are open to letting Tuanzebe go on loan.
Good signing for Newcastle United?
Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Newcastle.
A move to Newcastle United is exactly what Tuanzebe needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.
He has all the skillset required to be a success story at Newcastle. Therefore, it makes sense for Bruce to step up his attempts to bring the England centre-back to Premier League side.
It will be interesting to see if Newcastle make their move for the 23-year-old in the coming days.
