Newcastle United delivered £100m transfer ‘blow’ and Kalvin Phillips wage claim made

A look at all the latest Newcastle United transfer news and rumours as the Magpies look to move on from that disappointing defeat to Tottenham.

Newcastle United are hoping to swiftly forget their disappointing performance and defeat over the weekend.

Eddie Howe’s men must cast their 5-1 defeat to Tottenham to the back of their minds as they look to reach 40 points and beyond.

Wolves are next up for the Magpies, and they will fancy their chances of returning to winning ways following a disappointing run.

In the meantime, we have taken a look at all the latest transfer rumours.

Phillips links

Newcastle are being linked with a move for Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips ahead of this summer.

Phillips has been heavily linked with a move to Aston Villa, but he is now said to have become a target of the Magpies.

According to MailOnline, Newcastle are willing to give Phillips a huge pay rise, with an offer of £125,000 per week suggested.

Osimhen blow

The Magpies have also been linked with a move for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen over recent weeks, but it seems any hope of a move could be dashed.

That’s because Corriere dello Sport via Football Italia are reporting that Napoli have upped their asking price to around £100million after learning of interest from Manchester United.

Meanwhile, TuttoMercato are saying that the striker will base any decision on his future on winning, and Newcastle are not in that position just yet.
