According to journalist Alan Nixon, Newcastle United could be ready to sell goalkeeper Freddie Woodman this summer. The 23-year-old is a transfer target for Scottish champions Celtic as per an alternate report from the Chronicle Live.
Woodman is currently out on loan at EFL Championship side Swansea City, where he has impressed to a large extent.
Newcastle have Martin Dubravka as their undisputed first-choice goalkeeper currently. And with Mark Gillespie also signing for them, Woodman’s chances of getting first-team minutes next season are slim.
As a result, Alan Nixon reckons the club could consider offloading the 23-year-old in the summer. This will come as good news to Celtic, who are in the market for a new goalkeeper.
The Hoops released Craig Gordon at the end of the season when his contract ran out. And talks to sign Fraser Forster on another loan deal have hit a roadblock as things stand. This has left them with Scott Bain as the only senior goalkeeper.
With an unprecedented tenth successive Scottish Premiership on the horizon, manager Neil Lennon must recruit another goalkeeper. It now remains to be seen if they do act on their reported interest in Woodman come summer.
