Newcastle to make £3.5m bid for Man City defender

The Sun reports that Newcastle boss Chris Hughton has a limited transfer kitty this summer but is ready to splash some of his cash on Onuoha.

The 23-year-old is keen on leaving Eastlands in order to get regular first-team football.

Hughton is keen to strengthen his defence as Danny Simpson will miss the entire pre-season schedule after having had an ankle operation three weeks ago.
