Steve Bruce is pushing for Newcastle United to sign Hamza Choudhury on loan from Leicester City.
The 23-year old was a target for Bruce in the January window and is understood to be open to the move so he can play more regular football.
Bruce believes the England U21 international’s industry and combative nature would make a huge difference to his side but Newcastle’s hierarchy want their manager to trim his squad first to make room.

Newcastle bought Joe Willock from Arsenal in a £25million deal last week and they have been trying to offload first team and fringe players to offset their spending but to little avail.
It’s understood they would listen to offers for the likes of Sean Longstaff, Jeff Hendrick, Fabian Schar and Ciaran Clark as they look to recoup funds and free up space in the 25-man Premier League squad.
Choudhury made 22 appearances for Leicester last season but only ten in the Premier League. He has two years left on contract and Leicester are open to negotiating a deal.
