Newcastle United close to sealing Tosin Adarabioyo deal

Tosin Adarabioyo is reportedly a step closer to joining Newcastle United in a Bosman move in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Daily Mail, Tosin Adarabioyo has been the subject of interest from Newcastle United. The 26-year-old will leave Fulham as a free agent in the summer transfer window. He is now a step closer to joining the Tyneside outfit in a Bosman move, with the framework of the contract in place.

Tosin Adarabioyo at Fulham: The story so far

Tosin Adarabioyo has become one of the most highly sought-after players in the market in the last few months. Recent weeks have revealed that the Manchester native will not sign a new contract with Fulham, with his current deal expiring on July 1.

So, the 26-year-old will depart from Craven Cottage as a free agent in the coming weeks. Adarabioyo has turned out 132 times thus far for Fulham, chipping in with five goals and two assists. The player has played his final game for the West London outfit and will leave as a free agent on July 1.

Adarabioyo’s impending free-agent status has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile Premier League clubs. However, the outgoing Fulham defender will likely join Newcastle United instead of other well-known suitors like Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham.

What next?

Newcastle United’s interest in Tosin Adarabioyo is understandable. The report by Daily Mail has claimed that Eddie Howe and the club’s decision-makers admire the player’s physicality and ball-playing ability. So, with Sven Botman and Jamaal Lascelles being long-term absentees, Newcastle United can do with at least one new centre-back.

Adarabioyo is thus a viable target, with the 26-year-old keen on joining the Tyneside outfit, as he wants to play under Eddie Howe. The latest update has revealed that the Magpies are closing in on landing the Fulham defender, with the framework of his contract “in place”.

With Tosin Adarabioyo’s move to Newcastle United on the verge of completing, it will be interesting to see if some other suitor can turn his head. However, the 26-year-old will likely ply his trade for the Magpies in the 2024/25 season, with a first-choice berth waiting for him.
