Newcastle United ‘set to sign’ defender while plotting move for Man United & Liverpool target

Newcastle United are set to sign a Premier League youngster as they eye more academy additions.

Wolverhampton Wanderers right-back Leo Shahar is reportedly set to join Newcastle, according to Mail Online. The Magpies have been in negotiations with the England Under-16 international over the summer.

The teenager is highly-rated by Wolves and featured regularly for the club’s Under-18s side last season, scoring twice in 15 league appearances.

Wolves head of player development Darren Ryan told the club website: “Every time I watch [Shahar] playing for England he looks comfortable within the environment.

“We know how good he is technically and yes there are things he needs to improve on, but the more camps he’s on and the more call-ups he’s getting, the more comfortable he’s looking.

His performances are really consistent with the under-18s and he’s getting opportunities now to train with the 21s on the school release days. It’s great to go and see him in that environment with some of the best players in the country.
