An exciting Newcastle United transfer update has emerged, regarding the upcoming January transfer window…
Athletic journalist David Ornstein has claimed that the Magpies are not going to have a quiet month as they attempt to bolster Eddie Howe’s playing squad. It will be the club’s first opportunity to spend under their new ownership and they are seemingly set to make a splash in the water.
Speaking on The Athletic Football Podcast: Ornstein said:
“Newcastle are going to be busy. They’re in a mess and they genuinely have irons in fires.
“They are very actively looking and already trying to make moves in the market.”
Newcastle fans will surely be buzzing with this update from Ornstein as it brings with it the prospect of an exciting month for the supporters in January.
There is no hiding away from how poor the Magpies have been this season and it is going to take some effort to turn things around in the second half of the campaign. They have picked up a measly 10 points from 16 Premier League matches so far and now face Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Everton before the turn of the year.
This highlights the severity of the situation and explains why it is vital that PIF hit the ground running and enjoy a successful transfer window. The facts are that the current playing squad have struggled this season under Steve Bruce, Graeme Jones and Howe, suggesting that there is a quality issue.
Therefore, reinforcements are needed and the club need to get them in as quickly as possible. English teams do not benefit from the luxury of a winter break to do their business without worrying about matches and the longer they wait to make signings the more points they could potentially miss out on.
This is why Newcastle fans will be buzzing with Ornstein’s claim that they already have ‘irons in fires’ as it reveals that work is well underway and that the owners will not be wasting any time heading into January.
They appear to be laying the necessary groundwork and supporters should be excited to see what they are able to do.
