Cincinnati FC are on the verge of signing Newcastle United midfielder Kyle Scott on a permanent deal. Football insider have learned.
That site revealed last month that the MLS site was in talks to award a prize to 23-year-old Scott from St. James’ Park.
A United source said Football insider Cincinnati FC has offered Scott, 23, a deal and is expected to join during the MLS window that is now open.
The US League’s primary transfer window, which opened on March 10, has been extended to June 1 this year.
Cincinatti is keen to have a deal for Scott across the line ahead of the season’s opening day on April 17th.
Scott is out of contract at Newcastle at the end of the season.
The northeast giants have the option to extend this deal for another 12 months, but that probably won’t happen now as it approaches a move across the Atlantic.
MLS club manager Jaap Stam is a huge fan of the Chelsea Academy product and has followed it since he was in charge of Reading.
Scott has had no effect at Newcastle since joining a free transfer in the summer of 2019.
He was rated highly at Chelsea after winning 3 FA Youth Cups but has yet to make his senior Magpies debut.
He made 17 appearances for the U23, mainly in the central midfield.
Newcastle had pulled out all the stops to sign Scott and Tottenham and Manchester City beat his signature.
