Newcastle United close in on Tammy Abraham loan deal

Newly-promoted Newcastle United will move for unsettled former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina, reports The Mirror.

Newcastle United are reportedly "on the verge" of snapping up Chelsea's Tammy Abraham on loan.

Newcastle are one of them, while there is also interest from fellow Premier League sides Brighton, Leicester City and Everton.

As explained above, it works for Newcastle as they plan ahead to stay up this season, while for Chelsea it gives them the ideal opportunity to continue Abraham's development knowing that he will have limited playing time under Antonio Conte next year.

The chance to link up again with Benitez puts Premier League new boys Newcastle in pole position to land the former Bayern Munich stopper - who is set to make a decision on his future next week.

According to the Daily Mail, both Leicester City and Brighton were keen to secure Abraham's services this summer, but it appears as though it will be Newcastle who will be victorious in the race to sign him.

The deal is now expected to be completed as early as this weekend.

The deal would have been helped along by Benitez visiting Abraham personally at St George's Park.

The Championship's 2016-2017 third-top goalscorer is highly-regarded by the Premier League champions and they were said to be open to including the youngster into next season's first-team plans.
