NEWCASTLE UNITED remain interested in a possible loan move for Hamza Choudhury – but Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Leicester City are yet to receive a single offer for the midfielder.

Steve Bruce has accepted he will be unable to make another permanent addition ahead of tomorrow night’s transfer deadline, but the Magpies manager remains hopeful of being able to add another loan signing to the ranks.

He has been targeting central defenders and defensive midfielders for the majority of the summer, with Choudhury long his preferred option in the latter category.

The 23-year-old is keen to leave the King Power Stadium this summer as he has not featured in any of Leicester’s Premier League matches this season, with Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans and Boubakary Soumare all ahead of him in the Foxes’ pecking order.

However, while Rodgers is aware of Newcastle’s ongoing interest, the clock is ticking if the Magpies want to push through a deal, with the transfer window due to close at 11pm tomorrow night.

“That’s (a loan move for Choudhury) something we would have to wait until something would come in,” said Rodgers. “Hamza's attitude and mentality has been first class and there has been a lot of speculation around him going out and various clubs but, at this moment in time, we haven't had any offers in.

“To his credit, he's been absolutely first class in training even though he hasn't featured. It can be difficult for a player because you train to play the game, but he's understood where he's at.

“He's maturing all the time as a professional and as a player so he's just training away. Until anything comes in, that's how it will be.”
