Leeds United and Newcastle are amongst a host of Premier League sides keen on signing Manchester City defender Tosin Adarabioyo, according to a report from TEAMtalk.
The Whites have strengthened their options at the back since losing Ben White at the end of his loan spell. Robin Koch has arrived from Freiburg, while Pascal Struijk made his first start at centre-back for the club on the opening day of the campaign.
Newcastle meanwhile, have not signed a new centre-back thus far. They have however, loaned out Florian Lejeune.
TEAMtalk reports that both Leeds and the Magpies have made contact with the Cityzens concerning Adarabioyo. West Ham United, Everton and Fulham have all also reportedly registered an interest.
The report notes that City are reluctantly willing to sell the 22-year-old. TEAMtalk claims that they have made several attempts to agree a new contract with the youngster, but he has rejected all of the offers.
TBR View: Adarabioyo would be an excellent signing for Leeds or Newcastle
Adarabioyo is still yet to make his Premier League debut. Nevertheless, it would be no surprise if many Leeds and Newcastle fans were delighted about the links.
He is a player who has impressed in two loan spells in the Championship. TEAMtalk also notes that Pep Guardiola is an admirer of the defender.
He is predominantly a centre-back, but he has experience of playing in both full-back roles during his short career.
But with City keen to keep him, and a number of Premier League rivals also interested, it would appear that completing a deal may not be easy – despite his contract situation.
