January signings needed
Newcastle have a good squad, but manager Steve Bruce needs to add to his team for the Magpies to stave off the dreaded drop to the Championship at the end of the season.
Bowen is a very good attacking player who has been a star in the Championship, and the 22-year-old does have the calibre to make the step-up to the Premier League.
According to WhoScored, the youngster has scored four goals and provided two assists in 11 Championship appearances for Hull so far this season.
