Report: Newcastle identify 26-yr-old as January target, player could be open to the move

Newcastle United are reportedly looking to bring Jetro Willems back to the club when the transfer window re-opens in January. The 26-year-old left-back was on loan at St James’ Park last season but his stay at the club was cut short when he picked up a season-ending injury. Despite his short time at the club, Willems managed to win over the fans with his performances and commitment towards Newcastle United. The Dutchman has now managed to recover from his knee injury and he is back in training with his parent club, Eintracht Frankfurt. Newcastle had explored the possibility of signing him earlier this season as well but he was still recovering from his injury and would not have passed the medical during the summer transfer window. The Magpies ended up signing Jamal Lewis from Norwich City ...

Report: Newcastle plotting January move for England international

According to the Daily Telegraph, Newcastle United are keen on bringing Chelsea centre-back Fikayo Tomori to St. James’ Park on loan in January. The one-cap England international has played just 45 minutes of Premier League football for the Blues in 2020-21, with his other two appearances coming in the League Cup games against Barnsley and Tottenham Hotspur. He is finding it difficult to make manager Frank Lampard’s matchday squads in recent weeks, and Tomori will miss out on the Three Lions’ squad for next summer’s European Championships if he doesn’t get playing minutes to impress in the coming months. Newcastle are offering him the chance to prove himself all over again to Gareth Southgate during the second half of the season, though. The 22-year-old was close to joining Everton and the...

Report: Newcastle could look to bring 26-yr-old back to the Premier League in January

Newcastle could look to re-sign Nabil Bentaleb when the transfer window reopens in January. The 26-year-old midfielder was on loan at the Premier League club last season. According to Sport1, the player has recently been suspended by Schalke for the fifth time and his agent has taken a swipe at the German club. Apparently, the midfielder will be available for a nominal fee in January and Newcastle might look to bring him back to the club. Bentaleb has started just five league games for Schalke this season and he has been quite poor in them. There is no doubt that Newcastle need to add more depth to their central midfield but Bentaleb would be an uninspiring signing for them. The former Tottenham midfielder was highly rated a few years ago but he has failed to achieve his potential. He...

Julian Nagelsmann on Man United’s list of potential Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replacements

RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann is reportedly on Manchester United’s list of potential replacements for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, amid the mounting pressure regarding the Norwegian’s future at Old Trafford. The current United boss has overseen a shaky start to the new season for United, with his side currently 15th in the table having won just two of their opening six Premier League fixtures. The Red Devils had appeared to have turned things around after the international break, with a thumping win over Newcastle United, as well as impressive Champions League victories over Paris Saint-Germain and Leipzig quietening the doubters somewhat.

Manchester United in buoyant mood ahead of clash with Chelsea

Manchester United will approach Saturday’s home English Premier League (EPL) clash with Chelsea in buoyant mood rather than in trepidation. This is after a week which has gone some way to banishing the gloom that was descending on Old Trafford. After going into this month’s international break with a 6-1 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur, they have emerged from it with a couple of victories which have kick-started their campaign. Last weekend’s 4-1 win at Newcastle United was followed by a 2-1 victory away to Paris St-Germain (PSG) in the UEFA Champions League. For now at least, the critics have been silenced. Chelsea’s visit, however, presents a test of Manchester United’s upswing as they seek their first home league points of the season. This is in the wake of defeats by Crystal Palce and...
