Newcastle United, alongside the likes of West Ham United, Leeds United and Rennes, have been linked with a move for Fikayo Tomori in the January transfer window in recent weeks. And according to the Newcastle Chronicle, there appears to be some progress on that front, with the 23-year-old set to be offered on loan to the Magpies in the coming days.

Manager Steve Bruce is seemingly in favor of this move, but since his side will only be limited to loan deals in this window, and with Premier League rules allowing a maximum of two players on loan from other Premier League sides, he will need to weigh up his options carefully.
