NEWCASTLE are clear favourites to sign Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic.
That’s according to Sky Bet, who’ve priced Eddie Howe’s side at 6-1 to clinch his signature during the January transfer window.

Brighton are second-favourites at 16-1, with Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Manchester United all locked together at 20-1.
Leeds are the outsiders of the pack at 25-1 to add yet another US international to Jesse Marsch’s ranks at Elland Road.
Pulisic arrived at Stamford Bridge in June 2019 for around £58million.
Much was expected of the talented 24-year-old, but things have never really clicked for Pulisic at Chelsea.
He’s scored 26 goals and provided 21 assists in 136 appearances in all competitions, but has never cemented his role in the starting XI.

Sky Bet odds
Newcastle – 6/1
Brighton – 16/1
Borussia Dortmund – 20/1
Juventus – 20/1
Manchester United – 20/1
Leeds – 25/1
And it looks as though he never will with an influx of attacking talent pitching up in West London recently.
Raheem Sterling and Mykhaylo Mudryk have already joined while Noni Madueke and Christopher Nkunku will arrive in the summer.
Pulisic has less than 18 months remaining on his contract, which expires in June 2024.
And many are expecting him to be offloaded to help balance the books after Todd Boehly’s spending spree.
Newcastle are frontrunners with Sky Bet at 6-1, although that price could drift with Anthony Gordon thought to be close to a switch.
Brighton are 16-1, ahead of former club Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United at 20-1.
