Recently relegated Newcastle United, Fulham and Bristol City are all interested in acquiring the services of Bournemouth playmaker, Lee Tomlin, according to The Sun.
The former Peterborough midfielder has struggled to make an impact on the south coast and with Tomlin being reprimanded twice for his behaviour on social media.
Eddie Howe is to host a number of meetings in the summer to determine the future of Bournemouth’s fringe players, and with the relationship between Tomlin and Eddie Howe reportedly strained, Tomlin may be set to leave in the summer.
Lee Tomlin spent the second half of the season on loan at Bristol City which coincided with the Bristolian club’s revival, Lee Johnson has admitted that he would like Tomlin to return to Ashton Gate but the Robins face serious competition.
As Rafa Benitez looks to mastermind Newcastle’s immediate return to the Premier League, one player that he feels could have a big impact is Lee Tomlin.
A lack of creativity in the central of the park has been apparent and Lee Tomlin would fit the bill perfectly.
Fulham are the other side that in signing the playmaker with Fulham’s transfer embargo being lifted, Slavisa Jokanovic is set to be given significant funds to spend in the summer with Lee Tomlin a proposed target.
