Turkish club Trabzonspor are keen on signing Newcastle United outcast Jamal Lewis, who will not be registered with the club’s Premier League squad.

According to Express Sport, Newcastle United left-back Jamal Lewis could yet leave the club on loan or a permanent transfer, with Turkish club Trabzonspor keen on signing the out-of-favour defender. With the transfer window still open in Turkey, a move is possible for the left-back.

Newcastle United’s priority from recruiting the number of players they did was to escape relegation. The club remained in the bottom three heading into the international break, and after making significant moves in the transfer window, they are primed to escape the drop zone.

Newcastle kick-started the window by signing Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid. Eddie Howe considers the signing essential as the English international brings vast experience and winning mentality to the squad. They also made moves for players in other positions such as central defence, midfield and the front line.

Dan Burn was also a deadline day arrival from Brighton, as the Magpies ended their chase for a quality defender after suffering disappointments in their quest elsewhere. They also managed to sign Chris Wood from relegation rivals Burnley and were primed to make further additions before deadline day.

Their best piece of business came in the form of Bruno Guimaraes’s move from Lyon, while Newcastle ended their business by recruiting Aston Villa’s Matt Targett on loan. The left-back’s arrival meant the future of Jamal Lewis has been thrown in doubt, with the player even declining a move to the Championship.

Newcastle have reportedly informed Lewis of their decision to exclude him from their Premier League squad for the remainder of the season. This could force the left-back to consider his options and move out of the club on a loan deal elsewhere.

Turkish club Trabzonspor are reportedly keen on signing Lewis and take the player on loan. The window in the country remains, even as most of Europe has shut for business until the summer. They are interested in making an offer in the coming days, which the player and Newcastle United could weigh in on.

Newcastle do not want Lewis to be spending meaningless time on the sidelines and hope to convince the defender to complete the move. They want the left-back to continue playing regularly, which could be possible over in Turkey.
