Newcastle 'considering' bid for Jonathan Tah

Newcastle are thought to be interested in Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah - they could make a move for him in the January transfer window as they look to bolster their options at centre-back, according to a report from FootballTransfers.

Tah has been a significant factor in Leverkusen's impressive Bundesliga season that currently sees them sitting at the top of the table. With an estimated transfer cost of just £15 million, he could be a bargain for the Magpies if they make a move.

Manchester City's Kalvin Phillips 'interested' in joining Toon in January

Kalvin Phillips' woes at Manchester City are well-documented. He has struggled manfully to break into their first team - but his Etihad Stadium nightmare could soon come to an end, as Newcastle may put forth an offer for him next month - either in the form of a loan or a permanent transfer.

According to TEAMtalk, City would be 'happy' for the former Leeds United star to leave the club in January - moreover, he is also believed to be 'interested' in a move to Newcastle. It is unclear how much the Sky Blues will demand for his signature, though it is unlikely to be anywhere near the initial £42 million fee that they paid for him in the summer of 2022.
