Newcastle United are considering making a move to loan Manchester City defender Jason Denayer for a year, according to reports this morning.
The 19 year old centre-back has been at Celtic for the past season and impressed, playing 42 games in total and scoring 6 goals.
Whilst Manchester City have no intention of letting the promising young Belgian make a permanent move elsewhere, they are reported by the Chronicle and Daily Star amongst others, to see a loan move to another Premier League club as a valuable step in the progression of the player.
Jason Denayer is so well thought of he made his international debut for Belgium in a European Championships qualifier in March, despite not turning 20 until this summer.
With Newcastle needing so many new players this summer if they survive the relegation battle, it is hard to see Mike Ashley allowing sufficient money to be spent to fill all of the nmerous holes in a squad short on numbers and quality.
Recent seasons have seen the Newcastle United owner making significant use of the loan market but with mixed results.
Loic Remy was undoubtedly a success with his goals, whilst Luuk de Jong was totally anonymous in his half season, only to then become a massive success on his return to Dutch football.
As for Facundo Ferreyra….
Already in recent months United have been linked with a number of potential loan moves for next season, with a lot of speculation in April that Newcastle were interested in young Manchester United striker James Wilson.
