Newcastle eyeing Nottingham Forest defender Joe Worrall

Newcastle United are eyeing Nottingham Forest defender Joe Worrall.

Worrall, 22, has impressed at the City Ground this season and Steve Bruce is a big admirer of the centre-back, says The Sun.

He is eyeing a January move for Worrall on the cheap as the Forest youth graduate is out of contract in the summer.

Bruce reckons the no-nonsense defender can help shore up his backline for the second half of the season, regardless of where his team are in the table.

Worrall has been a Premier League target in the past for both Burnley and Crystal Palace but he refused to leave his boyhood club.
