Every player linked with Newcastle United this summer - as Magpies await next big transfer move

A busy summer of incomings and outgoings is expected at St James Park.

Newcastle United made further progress in the summer transfer window when Burnley and England goalkeeper Nick Pope became the Magpies second signing of the close-season on Thursday night.

His addition follows on from Matt Targett’s decision to make a permanent switch to Tyneside after the on-loan Aston Villa defender played a key role in helping secure Premier League safety last season.

New sporting director Dan Ashworth is playing a lead role as United look to replicate the success of the January transfer window when the additions of Kieran Trippier, Chris Wood, Bruno Guimaraes, Dan Burn and Targett laid the platform for a march up the table.

Some intriguing names from the Premier League and around Europe have already been suggested as possible targets for what could be an eventful summer on Tyneside.

Reims star Hugo Ekitike and Lille defender Sven Botman are two players Newcastle hope to sign over the coming weeks - although their frustrations over the pace of those negotiations are understandable.

Newcastle World takes a look at the players linked with a move to St James Park as media speculation increases with the new season now just over a month away.
