Tosin Adarabioyo leaning towards Newcastle United switch

Tosin Adarabioyo is reportedly leaning towards joining Newcastle United after leaving Fulham as a free agent in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Daily Mail, Tosin Adarabioyo is the subject of interest from Newcastle United. The Magpies are scouring the market for a centre-back heading into the summer transfer window. And the 26-year-old Fulham defender is favouring a move to St. James’ Park over his other suitors.

Tosin Adarabioyo, Fulham and his journey so far

Tosin Adarabioyo has found a stable footing in his career since joining Fulham from Manchester City in October 2020. The opportunities did not come for him at the Etihad, and he decided to embark on a new adventure four years ago. Since then, the Manchester native has gone from strength to strength.

The 26-year-old has been a regular for Fulham for much of his stint at the West London club. The player has turned out 132 times thus far for the Cottagers, chipping in with five goals and two assists. However, Adarabioyo’s spell with Fulham will end in the summer transfer window, as his contract will expire on July 1.

Adarabioyo does not want to sign a new contract with the West London club and is seeking greener pastures. The former Manchester City defender has no shortage of suitors pursuing him heading into the summer transfer window, with several high-profile clubs keen on signing him. However, his next destination might be Newcastle United.

New adventure calls

Newcastle United’s interest in Tosin Adarabioyo is understandable. The Magpies have endured a horrific injury crisis thus far this season, with the defensive unit struggling to make up the numbers heading into the final few games. Eddie Howe has lost Sven Botman, Fabian Schar, and Jamaal Lascelles to long-term injuries.

So, it behoves Newcastle United to invest in a young centre-back, with Adarabioyo emerging as a viable target. The 26-year-old has now handed a boost to the Tyneside outfit as he is favouring a move to St. James’ Park instead of joining any of his other suitors in the summer transfer window.

It will be interesting to see if Newcastle United can take advantage of the latest update and secure Tosin Adarabioyo’s signature in the summer transfer window. The Magpies might have become the front-runners to sign the Fulham defender in a Bosman move.
