Having confirmed their place in the Premier League for next season, Newcastle will be looking at ways to improve the squad with the hopes of re-establishing themselves as a top half side once again.

According to the Athletic, they are looking to bolster their defence with a towering centre-back.

It has been reported that Newcastle are monitoring Fulham centre-back, Tosin Adarabioyo.

Will Newcastle sign Adarabioyo?

Despite Parker's desire to keep Adarabioyo, he wouldn't be able to stop him leaving if he does indeed have a buy-out clause in his contract.

It's also believed that he is willing to leave Fulham after their relegation from the Premier League.

However, Newcastle will have to compete for his signature, with Arsenal also interested in the 23-year-old.
