Newcastle want a player Pep Guardiola who claims to be deceptively quick ...

According to The Mirror, Newcastle United are interested in Fulham''s defender Tosin Adarabioyo.

Newcastle, of course, has already established a new Fulham centre-back in their backline, led by Dan Burn, and now they may partner him with Tosin.

Burn is, of course, one of the most physically imposing defenders in the Premier League, and while Tosin is a huge in his own right standing at 6ft 5, it''s fair to say that he and Burn differ in one area.

Although Burn is a boulder at the back, Tosin is more of a Rolls Royce that takes on incredible physical strength and lightning speed.

Pep Guardiola has praised the Fulham''s defence in the past.

Whats been said?

During Guardiola''s time at Manchester City, he talked about the centre-back.

Tosin needs to be told that he has a lot of steps to improve, so that the player isnt done. But he has the most of the equipment, according to Guardiola.

He is fast, he is faster than people can understand it. He has the ability to look behind the line for the next step and the next pass, but he has a lot of things to do, and I hope I can assist him in his development.

Complete package

You''d be forgiven for believing that Tosin is the whole package at the centre-half, according to Guardiola''s description.

The Fulham man is very capable of achieving things all. He is lightning quick, he is as strong as they come, and his line-breaking performance is at the next level.

Tosin is aiming for a place in the England squad with the necessary coaching, and he will certainly get a chance for the Three Lions.

Fulham''s selection of the centre-back may be easier than done, but Newcastle may find him to be a real asset.
