With it now being over three months since the summer window slammed shut, we at Football Fancast are getting rather tired with the same old stories being floated around in the Premier League’s transfer rumour mill.

Take Newcastle for instance. I can’t count the amount of times this season I’ve read reports in the tabloids speculating the Magpies will try to sign Bafetimbi Gomis (third time lucky eh?) and also try their hardest to keep Yohan Cabaye.

So to cure your transfer boredom and to bring some fresh perspective to proceedings, we’ve come up with a list of SIX players, some linked to the Tynesiders in the tabloids and others not, that could make rather unexpected arrivals at St. James’s Park in January.
