Newcastle favourites to land Wigan forward Kyle Joseph

Newcastle United are favourites to land Wigan Athletic forward Kyle Joseph.

The Daily Mail says Newcastle lead Celtic in the race to sign Joseph.

The Magpies are working on a deal for the highly rated 19-year-old, according to the report, and are said to be in the driving seat.

Newcastle are said to be willing to pay £850,000 for the Scotland u19 international, which is significantly better than the compensation of around £230,000 from Celtic for a cross-border transfer of a player out of contract and under 24.

Joseph has five goals in 16 appearances for the League One side this term.
