Newcastle have seen a number of bids for 18-year-old Chelsea prodigy Lewis Hall rejected, but the club are hopeful another offer will finally get the deal done. After dazzling in nine Premier League outings last season, Hall appears to be on the brink of a move to St. James’ Park.
Hall is renowned for his versatility, adept at both full-back and in midfield — something which has no doubt caught the eye of Magpies boss Eddie Howe. Despite signing a new contract which would keep him with the Blues till 2030, Hall appears to be looking for a fresh challenge elsewhere. Will his departure to Newcastle finally go through? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Newcastle United’s pursuit of Chelsea’s teenage defender, Reece Hall, has shown no signs of slowing down. Despite having multiple bids rebuffed, the Magpies have kept up their efforts to make the homegrown youngster a part of their team.
Hall has harboured ambitions to play for his hometown club since he was a child and is clearly eager for the chance to take to the pitch under the guidance of manager Steve Howe. This, coupled with Champions League opportunities, could prove highly attractive to the 19-year-old and a tempting lure for Chelsea if Newcastle are prepared to meet the Blues’ asking price of at least £30m.
At this stage, it appears Chelsea are more open to Hall leaving on loan for the season before making a permanent move, although with promising performances from Ben Chilwell, Ian Maatsen and Marc Cucurella in defense, a sale could represent good business for the Londoners. Whether it’s at St James’ Park or elsewhere, time will tell if Reece Hall fulfils his potential and carves out a successful career in the Premier League.
