Eddie Howe’s men remain nine points clear of the drop in any case, and guaranteed safety gets closer with every passing game.

Wolves are next up for Newcastle, and as preparations begin for that one, we have rounded up all the latest transfer rumours:

Defender links

It’s no secret the Magpies would like to add to their back-line again this summer, and it seems the club’s scouting has led them to the Bundesliga.

According to the MailOnline, Newcastle are eyeing a deal for Koln centre-back Timo Hubers, who has made 19 appearances so far this season.

Hubers is moving into the last year of his contract from this summer, and report claims a number of Premier League clubs are interested.

Newcastle, West Ham and Leeds are all credited with an interest.

Awoniyi opportunity

Newcastle are also being linked with another Bundesliga star in Union Berlin frontman Taiwo Awoniyi.

The Nigerian striker has scored 17 time across all competitions this season and is being tipped to move on to bigger things.

Newcastle have been linked in recent days, and BILD claim £25million will be enough to seal the deal this summer, with Union Berlin reportedly willing to sell.
