After a breakout campaign for Liverpool in which he’s done a good job at filling in for their defensive injury problems, Nat Phillips could leave Anfield for regular first team football, with Newcastle the favourites to sign him. Rumours are circling that after successfully steering the Magpies away from relegation, Steve Bruce could be handed the funds to strengthen his side in the summer.
The defence could be an area that Bruce looks at, with doubts about Jamal Lascelles’ future along with Fabian Schar entering the final year of his contract. Phillips could be brought on to get regular first team in action at St James’ Park and improve their backline.
Odds are 4/1 with Sky Bet for Newcastle to sign Nat Phillips.
