Newcastle chasing Preston centre-half Ben Davies

Preston centre-half Ben Davies is attracting Premier League interest.

The Sun says Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce is keen on classy Preston centre-half Davies as he plans some personal input into the players who come in.

Bruce was a huge admirer of Davies, 23, in his spell in charge at Championship level and now he has the cash to make a move.

Toon owner Mike Ashley started the window with a £50m budget for new players, boosted by the £30m sale of Ayoze Perez

But that amount is set to be massively reduced by the £38m deal for Brazilian striker Joelinton.
