United to rival EPL duo for winger

Published Add your comment

Leeds United winger Robert Snodgrass could leave for the Premier League, with Newcastle United the latest club to be linked with his services, report the Daily Mail.

With the Yorkshire side unlikely to reach the Premier League this season, a number of their star players could be moving on, and Snodgrass, a Scottish international could lead the exit from Elland Road.

Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion and now United lead the race for the midfielder, who first caught the eye during Leeds' cup win over Manchester United.

His performance against United that day, and against Arsenal, where his 54th minutes penalty look certain to sent Leeds through until a late Gunners rally, means several club are chasing his signature.


Snodgrass was brought to United by Gary McAllister in 2008 and after making his Scotland debut earlier this year, is preparing for a step up.

Newcastle, who have £35 million to spend this sumer after the sale of Andy Carroll to Liverpool, will certainly be able to afford the £5 million rated player, one of a host of signings expected to be brought in by Alan Pardew.

The Magpies face Liverpool this weekend, in Carroll first game for The Reds against his former club, since his move in the January transfer window.
