Newcastle keeping tabs on Kyle Bartley

Newcastle United are interested in signing West Bromwich Albion defender Kyle Bartley.

The 29-year-old has one year left on his current contract and may be available for a knockdown price in the summer.


According to the Telegraph, Burnley are also looking at the experienced centre-back.

Bartley has done well for Sam Allardyce in recent weeks, and he could prove to be a quality squad option for Newcastle next season.

The Magpies could certainly use more depth in their defence, and Bartley has the experience to make an immediate impact.

West Brom are expected to be relegated from the Premier League this season, and Bartley may move on in search of top-flight football.

Newcastle are also battling to beat the drop, and their summer transfers will depend on them staying in the Premier League.

The Magpies are currently two points above the relegation zone, and their recent run of form has been worrying.

They have picked up just two wins in 20 games across all competitions, and Steve Bruce is in desperate need of some luck to turn things around.

On top of their poor form, the Magpies are dealing with major injury concerns, with Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin and Isaac Hayden all currently sidelined.
