Newcastle target Manchester United defender Chris Smalling. The 30-year-old has two years left on contract at Old Trafford and is available for transfer.
Newcastle are targeting Manchester United defender Chris Smalling as Steve Bruce looks to strengthen his backline.
Smalling leads Bruce’s wanted list this transfer window, having enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Roma last season, where he played 37 times to help them to a fifth-placed finish in Serie A.
The 30-year-old has two years left on his contract at Old Trafford and is available for transfer.
Bruce wants to ‘buy British’ this summer and former England international Smalling clearly fits the profile, although the collapse of the proposed Saudi-led takeover means his transfer funds may be limited.
