Since Newcastle United’s Saudi-funded takeover was completed on Thursday, the rumour mill has gone into overdrive.
Now the richest the club on the planet, the Toon Army can realistically afford just about anybody they want, and in response to their newfound wealth, the global media have had a field day linking them to just about any precariously-positioned, big name talent you can think of.
The same can be said of the managerial situation at St. James' Park, with the expectation being that Steve Bruce will be relieved of his duties in the near future, and a barrage of names reportedly in the running to become his successor.
With so much going on, we’ve made things a whole load simpler by gathering all of the gossip in one convenient place.
