Newcastle United is ready to carry Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo to St. James’ Park next month on loan until the remainder of the 2020-21 season, according to The Athletic.

The 30-year-old has failed to make the first-team of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford this season, with his last start coming in October against Everton in an under-23s fixture.

When the January transfer window opens, Magpies head coach Steve Bruce wants to improve his defense, and he has been drawn by Rojo’s versatility. As a left-back and center-back, the Argentina international can play, and Newcastle is keen to sign him as a result. However, with failing Sheffield United and two Spanish sides still hoping to employ his services next month, they are not the only ones keeping tabs on Rojo.

The Man Utd guy has six months left at the Theatre of Dreams on his £ 100,000-a-week deal, but there is an opportunity to extend it for another year.

The defense of the Magpies was ripped apart last night by Leeds United as they conceded five goals, and during the winter transfer window, Bruce will be very keen to improve his options at the back.

Since joining them in the summer of 2014, Rojo has played over 120 games for the Red Devils following an impressive World Cup campaign with Argentina.

In 13 months, he has not appeared for the first-team, spending part of last season on loan with Estudiantes until an ankle problem and the coronavirus pandemic suddenly ended his spell back home.

Rojo wants to stay in England and next month, Newcastle may be allowing him to do so. If he impresses in the coming months at SJP, he could win himself a permanent transfer, and it will be fascinating to see if a move will work out.
