Newcastle are in their quest to sign a new midfielder in January and they are eyeing Bristol City midfielder Josh Brownhill.
Chances of getting Brownhill may be likely since Bristol City have also been linked with a £1 million move for Liam Walsh.
Brownhill will be out of contract in the summer and while City have the option to extend for another year, but chances of getting a new midfielder while still getting a big bid for the midfielder could force their hand in letting him go.
City may really have to think twice if they really need to sell Brownhill in January although a big offer could make them consider. However, if they are really attempting to reach the Premier League for the first time they might really have to weigh their options in letting go their key assets.
