‘Not done deal’ – Fabrizio Romano suggests Spurs are still in the race for PL star 

Fabrizio Romano has dismissed suggestions that Newcastle are set to secure Tosin Adarabioyo, insisting that the race for the Fulham star’s signature remains wide open.

On Wednesday, The Northern Echo handed Tottenham a blow by suggesting that Newcastle are ‘close’ to securing Adarabioyo’s services after he decided to leave Fulham as a free agent this summer.

The report claimed that even though the likes of Spurs, Man Utd and West Ham had spoken to the centre-back’s representatives, the Magpies had moved into pole position to secure the player.

It was asserted that Eddie Howe’s men had been working on the deal for a long time and were closing in after offering the 26-year-old a long-term deal worth £100,000 per week.

The race for Tosin Adarabioyo remains open

However, this has now been dismissed by Romano, who says that the deal to take Adarabioyo to St James’ Park is far from done.

The journalist asserted that the Englishman continues to consider a number of options, with the race still very much being wide open.

Newcastle might have an advantage over Spurs in the race for Adarabioyo as they would potentially be able to offer the Fulham star assurances of game time, which is not something that Postecoglou can, given the centre-back options at his disposal.
