Report claims top clubs’ interest in two Newcastle teenagers

Newcastle United duo Freddie Woodman and Paul Woolston are reportedly attracting interest from other clubs.

A number of top clubs are interested in Newcastle United duo Freddie Woodman and Paul Woolston, according to The Sun.

Woodman is 18 years of age and plays as a goalkeeper, while Woolston is 17 years old and is also a goalkeeper.

“Newcastle may lose two England youth team keepers,” states the report in The Sun.

“Toon are stalling on deals for Freddie Woodman, 18, and Paul Woolston, 17, which has alerted a host of top clubs.”

It is interesting that Newcastle are (reportedly) stalling on deals for two of their promising young players.

Woolston has yet to feature for the first team, and perhaps the Magpies want to see what he is capable of before handing him a new contract.

As for Woodman, he has trained with the Newcastle first team this season and recently had a loan spell at Crawley Town.

Newcastle’s current situation

Newcastle are third from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with 24 points from 26 matches.

Steve McClaren’s side are level on points with 17th-placed Norwich City and have a game in hand.

Things are looking bleak for the Magpies, who are in real danger of going down to the Championship at the end of the season.
