Newcastle close in on triple January transfer deadline day swoop

Newcastle United are set to complete a triple deadline day swoop in the dying hours of the transfer window as they continue to spend under new ownership.

The club have already brought in Bruno Guimaraes, Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood so far this January, while Brighton defender Dan Burn is on the verge of signing for the club, who currently sit in 18th place in the top flight.

The business will not stop there, however, with at least two more new faces expected at St James’ Park come the end of today.

Firstly, Matt Targett is expected to join on loan from Aston Villa, having seen his left-back spot taken by new arrival Lucas Digne under Steven Gerrard’s stewardship.

The deal would shore up the left side of the Magpies’ defence, a position that, like centre back, they have been targeting all January window.

Back in for Ekitike

And, in shock news, it appears that Eddie Howe and co. have finally made a striker breakthrough. This comes as they have reportedly had a 20-25 million pound bid for Stade Reims forward Hugo Ekitike accepted, leaving them free to discuss personal terms with the young striker.

Should all three players arrive, it would prove a relatively successful transfer window and would have addressed many of the major issues in the squad: now, they need to perform on the pitch.
