A major update has emerged on Newcastle United’s efforts to bring players in during the January transfer window…
Responding to a fan asking whether or not the club will make any more signings in the coming days, Telegraph journalist Luke Edwards has revealed that they are closing in on two players.
He Tweeted: “That’s the plan judging by conversations I had over weekend. Two deals are close apparently but until they are done they’re not done and no point hiding fact # are finding it tough.”
Eddie Howe will surely be buzzing with this news as it suggest that he will have two players added to his squad in the coming days, although there is no guarantee. It shows that Nick Hammond and PIF are working hard behind the scenes to get things done and that they are making progress with their efforts.
The claim of two deals being close proves that they are making strides in their attempts to bring players in and Howe, along with the fans, will be delighted with this. It remains to be seen who the two players are and what positions they play in, but there it is difficult to deny that the Magpies are in dire need of strengthening across the board.
Ultimately, Newcastle have not been good enough in the Premier League this season and that is reflected in their points tally. They have 12 points from 20 matches and have only won one game throughout the campaign, whilst Norwich are the only team with more goals conceded.
Howe needs players to improve his team if they want to avoid relegation to the Championship and that is why he will be delighted with this update from Edwards. Further additions to his team appear to be on the horizon and he will undoubtedly be excited at the prospect of strengthening his XI.
This also comes after a Telegraph article from the journalist claiming that the Magpies are hoping to sign Diego Carlos by the end of the week. It is impossible to say whether or not he is one of the two players Edwards mentioned in his Tweet, but there is the potential that he is someone the club are trying to sign in the coming days based on the report.
