Newcastle United looking to loan Tottenham player Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

Newcastle United have set their sights on securing the services of Tottenham player Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the ongoing winter transfer window. The Magpies find themselves in dire need of a defensive midfielder to bolster their squad and turn around what has been a challenging season for them.

Hojbjerg, a seasoned veteran, has an impressive track record with Tottenham, having featured in a total of 167 games. During his tenure with the club, he showcased his versatility by scoring 10 goals and contributing 16 assists.

The 28-year-old Danish midfielder has also been a stalwart for his national team, participating in 73 matches and finding the back of the net on 7 occasions.

Newcastle’s interest in Hojbjerg comes at a crucial time when their midfield options are limited due to injuries. Manager Eddie Howe is grappling with the absence of key players like Joelinton, Joe Willock, and Elliot Anderson in the midfield, creating a void that urgently needs filling.

Despite his experience and skill, Hojbjerg has found himself playing second fiddle to Rodrigo Bentancur and Yves Bissouma in the starting lineup under manager Ange Postecoglou.
