Toon tipped to make move for City defender - reports

Published Add your comment

Newcastle have identified Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha as potential January acquisition, it has been claimed.

According to the Sunday Sun, Magpies scouts have been told to find a capable right-back that could join the club in the new year, and Onuoha has been shortlisted.

The 24-year-old spent last season on loan with Sunderland, where he scored a stunning solo goal against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in a shock 3-0 win for the Black Cats.

And it would appear that Newcastle were sufficiently impressed with the exploits of the Onuoha during his previous stint in the north-east, and may now try to bring him to St James' Park when the transfer window reopens.


Newcastle will be under intense pressure to spend big in January, having failed to sufficiently invest the money made from the sale of Andy Carroll.

The 21-year-old left Newcastle for Liverpool last winter, but Alan Pardew was unable to use the vast majority of the £35 million received on new players.
