Newcastle United consider surprise move for £15m defender – report
Newcastle United have been linked with a move for Ben Gibson.
The defender has found his opportunities limited since joining Burnley from Middlesbrough in a £15m deal last year.
Newcastle have been linked with a January move for the 26-year-old, who can also play at left-back.
However, United head coach Steve Bruce has strength in depth in central defence.
Bruce has Florian Lejeune on his way back from long-term injury, while Federico Fernandez, linked with Rafa Benitez’s Dalian Yifang, is waiting for an opportunity.
