Newcastle United will land the signature of Rob Holding on loan in the near future, a report from The Times claims.
According to The Times, the north London side have decided to delay the defender’s exit, but he will eventually head out on a season-long loan.
Hence, Holding has emerged as the alternative target and the 24-year-old is likely to join them following the recent arrival of Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille.
Sokratis is expected to leave in the next few days amid interest from the likes of Napoli and AS Roma. Mustafi, Mari and Chambers have been out injured.
Mari is, however, expected to return to full training this month and that may pave the way for the departure of Holding to the Magpies on a season-long loan.
