Leeds United have reportedly approached Newcastle United regarding a deal for out of favour goalkeeper Karl Darlow – but should the Magpies let him leave?
According to Football Insider, the Whites have approached Newcastle for Darlow, with Kiko Casilla’s and Bailey Peacock-Farrell’s futures up in the air.
Darlow made just one appearance for the club last season and hasn’t had a look in ahead of Martin Dubravka following his St James’ Park arrival.
That looks unlikely to change following the arrival of new boss Steve Bruce, with Darlow now entering the final 12 months of his Magpies contract.
Leeds would reportedly be willing to take the former Nottingham Forest shot-stopper either on loan or sign him permanently, so a potential move may well be one Newcastle are willing to entertain.
A move away would benefit both the club, who would get him off their wage bill, and the player himself, who would more than likely get regular first-team football once again.
However, it remains to be seen as to whether or not Leeds will firm up their interest in the 28-year-old before the window closes.
