Coventry City defender Daniel Fox is set to become Newcastle United’s first deadline day transfer after the club launched a bid for the player last night, says Sky Sports News.

Fox has played 42 games for the Sky Blues so far, and has been tipped to be one of the most promising young defenders in England.

The England U21 International plays at left-back, and is being brought in as a potential replacement for Spaniard Jose Enrique who is expected to leave United if his potential transfer to either Celtic, or Athletico Madrid materialises.

The fee is a around £1.6 million plus add-ons, and is expected to be completed in the next few hours.
