Newcastle United are back in action on Saturday afternoon after two weeks off.

The Magpies, like the rest of their Premier League rivals, were sidelined due to postponements last weekend, but they face Bournemouth at home on Saturday.

Newcastle have enjoyed a solid start to the season, but they need to turn draws into wins if they want to compete in the top half.

A win against newly promoted Bournemouth would be a good start, and particularly ahead of the international break, which follows this one.

In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding St James’ Park.

Harrison interest

Newcastle are still said to be monutoring Leeds United star Jack Harrison.

The Magpies made bids for the winger during the summer transfer window, but to little avail, with Leeds standing firm having already comissioned two big sales.

But it seems Newcastle’s interest remains as they take an early look towards the January window.

According to 90min, Leeds are now working on a new deal for Harrison, who already has a deal until 2024.

They are attempting to strike a new deal to put distance between their winger and rival clubs, and it’s claimed Newcastle are still interested.

Diaby watched

Moussa Diaby is another wide man who was linked with a move to St James’ Park during the summer.

The Bayer Leverkusen man wound up staying put, but there is interest, according to 90min.

It’s claimed Newcastle and and Tottenham sent scouts to watch Diaby’s performance during Leverkusen’s win over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Diaby scored in the game, finding the net in the 87th minute, and it will be interesting to see if one of those two clubs make a move in January.

The 23-year-old is currently under contract until 2025.
