Newcastle United to make a move for Mark Gillespie

There has been intense speculation surrounding the future of Mark Gillespie in the last period.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Newcastle United will make a move for Mark Gillespie.

There has been no movement on Gillespie agreeing a contract extension at Motherwell, and he will be on the radar of many English clubs during the summer.

Steve Bruce wants to sign a new goalkeeper and Mark Gillespie is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Bruce is a long term admirer of Gillespie and believes he can get the most out of the England international.

According to the report, “Newcastle United are eyeing a move for Motherwell goalkeeper Mark Gillespie. The 28-year-old is a former Magpies youth player. Now he could move to a club and serve as a backup to Martin Dubrakva, according to Daily Record. Gillespie is out of contract in the summer, and would be a bargain addition for Newcastle boss Steve Bruce. Existing backup keepers at Newcastle, Karl Darlow and Rob Elliot, are both out of contract in the summer as well. If they move on, adding Gillespie would be the next step for Bruce.”


Newcastle United will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Gillespie to join the club.

The 28-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Newcastle squad and would be a good buy in the summer transfer window.

How strong that interest is and whether Newcastle United will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
