Newcastle United in talks to sign attacking midfield wonderkid

Newcastle United are in talks to sign highly-rated attacking midfielder Alex Lowery from Rangers.

That’s according to a recent report by Football Insider, which claims that Magpies have stepped up their efforts to sign the 18-year-old ahead of the summer transfer window.

Although several other top clubs are interested in luring the talented teenager away from Scotland’s top flight, it is Eddie Howe who thinks he is standing at the front of the queue after holding talks with the player’s agent last week.

Since joining the Jers Youth Academy, Laurie, highly ranked among the club’s recruitment team, has made 13 appearances, in all competitions, including four with the first team.

Lowry, whose contract expires next year, scored three goals and provided two additional assists.
