Newcastle United set to seal three deadline day transfers - talks ongoing over a fourth
It’s January transfer deadline day - and Newcastle United are expected to confirm up to three deals before the 11pm deadline.
Eddie Howe’s side have brought two new players to St James’ Park so far this month.
Eighteen-year-old Garang Kuol joined from A-League side Central Coast Mariners before being loaned to Hearts for the remainder of the 2022-23 campaign.
The Magpies then finally sealed Anthony Gordon’s signature for £45million having first attempted to sign the Liverpool-born forward last summer.
After Gordon’s arrival on Sunday, and West Ham’s Harrison Ashby on route, Howe was ready to declare United’s winter transfer business over - until Nottingham Forest came in for Jonjo Shelvey.
Howe was reluctant to let the 30-year-old go, but accepted his wishes to pursue the move and sign a two-and-a-half-year contract. But Shelvey might not be the only departure.
