Arsenal defender set to join Newcastle on a loan deal

Arsenal Center back Rob Holding is set to join Newcastle United on a season-long loan deal,according to report from England.
The 24-year-old joined Arsenal from Bolton in 2016 and has gone on to win two FA Cup medals but his game time last season was limited following his recovery from ACL surgery. And he seems not to have recover his best form since then.

With William Saliba returning from his loan at Saint-Etienne and Gabriel Magalhães set to join from Lille soon, it’s no secret that Arsenal need to shift a few defenders before the transfer window closes in October. The likes of mustafi, sokartis and Chambers might also be among those to change club.
Interestingly, despite our plethora of centre-backs, we’re short of options for today’s Community Shield clash with Mari and mustafi out so Holding could bid farewell for the year after another run out at Wembley.
Under contract until 2023, there’s no immediate need to sell the 24-year-old. A season of regular football at St James’ Park could stand him in good stead for the future and help him to recover his best form. A run of games has certainly helped boost his confidence in the past.
If Holding does complete a move to Newcastle, he’ll be the third centre-back to depart on loan for the year after Zech Medley, who joined Gillingham, and Dinos Mavropanos, who signed for Stuttgart.
