Newcastle United should find out in the coming hours whether they’ve been successful in their offer for Leganes midfielder Gabriel Appelt Pires. Yesterday Newcastle United tabled a bid for the Brazilian.

TMW have reported a decision should come soon to whether Gabriel will be heading to Newcastle United in this transfer window. With the deadline approaching Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez will be hoping to add to his squad as the Magpies look to bounce back to the Premier League at the first attempt.

Leganes are now thinking over the Championship club’s offer, and are expected to inform Newcastle United about their decision very soon.

Gabriel came through the Juventus youth system after arriving from Brazil in 2011. The 23-year-old has played for several Italian clubs, including Pescara, Spezia and Livorno. He’s been with his current club Leganes since 2015 after an initial loan spell with the Spanish club.

With just a few days left of the transfer window, Benitez and Liverpool will be looking to get business done quickly.
