Newcastle United making a smart move by grabbing former Wigan Athletic man on loan

The Sun have reported that Steve Bruce is plotting an ambitious move. He wants to take Chelsea star, Reece James to Newcastle on loan.

It looks like Steve Bruce will be making a call to see if James is available for half a season at Newcastle.

Newcastle have struggled to fill the right back position this season. Players like Javier Manquillo, Emil Krafth and DeAndre Yedlin have all tried to fill that position so far this season.

However, Steve Bruce thinks that James will be a great addition to his side.

The 19 year old spent last season on loan with Wigan Athletic. He impressed that much that he ended up with the Captain’s arm band.

Chelsea

Reece James forced his way into Frank Lampard’s squad.

Unfortunately he will only get to play a few games because of Cesar Azpilicueta’s current form.

Steve Bruce

Bruce will be looking to benefit from this as he can offer the teenager weekly football.

This is a sensible and tactical plan from the Newcastle manager. It looks like Steve Bruce could try to pitch his plan to the teenager before the transfer window opens in January.
