Hull City are hoping to tie Jarrod Bowen down to a new deal, according to The Hull Daily Mail.
The Tigers will table a four-year improved deal for the left-footed winger to fend off Premier League interest. This could be a blow for Newcastle United’s hopes.
Newcastle and Southampton are reportedly keen to sign Bowen. Hull value their prize asset at £20m with the two struggling Premier League sides weighing up January swoops, as per The Express.
Bowen has scored nine goals in 15 games this season, as well as providing two assists. This takes his total tally to 46 goals and 10 assists in just over 100 games for Hull. This is a remarkable tally for a young winger.
Given his importance to the team, Grant McCann and Hull are desperate to get Bowen to commit his future to the KCOM Stadium. If he pens his new four-year contract, this could put an end to speculation linking him with a January exit.
It is no surprise to see these two clubs battling it out for Bowen. He has a proven track record in the Championship and he is young enough to continue improving when he takes the step up to the top-flight.
Newcastle and Southampton are both struggling. The Magpies have scored six goals in 10 Premier League games and Southampton are in the relegation zone after a 9-0 loss against Leicester City.
Bowen could be an inspired signing for either club, bolstering their survival hopes. But a new four-year contract would effectively price them out of this deal.
