QPR, Barnsley and MK Dons are interested in signing Stevenage striker Danny Newton, according to the Birmingham Mail.
He was a graduate of Jamie Vardy’s V9 academy in the summer which resulted in him being snapped up by League Two side Stevenage. He has bagged 10 goals for them so far this season and has various clubs keeping tabs on him.
The 26 year-old was born in Liverpool and has spent the majority of his career playing in non-league. He bagged 29 league goals for Tamworth last season and it was this goal scoring form which enabled him to join Vardy’s academy and get recognised.
He, like Vardy, has started off in non-league and will be hoping his career can replicate the Leicester City striker and he can end up playing in the Premier League one day. It can be done, and we have also seen it with the likes of Charlie Austin.
Newton started his career with Hinckley United before moving to Nuneaton Town in 2010. He struggled to get into Nuneaton’s team and he was loaned back out to Hinckley before he was shipped out on loan again to Barwell, who he later joined on a permanent deal.
He then had spells at Brackley Town and Leamington before he joined Tamworth in 2015. His career took off at Tamworth and his 29 league goals earned him a move to the Football League.
Barnsley, MK Dons and QPR are now all being linked with him and a dream move for Danny Newton could well be on the cards.
