Newcastle United’s remarkable £77m January transfer window spend - according to Football Manager 2024

Will there be incomings and outgoings at Newcastle United when the January transfer window opens? We take to Football Manager 2024 to see how things may pan out at St James Park.

The rumours have already began to circulate as the January transfer window draws ever closer - but what moves could Newcastle United make when the winter trading period opens for business? We fire up the brand new edition of Football Manager to see how the world’s most popular managerial simulation predicts events will pan out as the virtual Magpies look to build on a promising first half to the season.

To set the scene, Eddie Howe’s side are sat in the top six of the Premier League table and have progressed into the knockout stages of the Champions League with a round of 16 tie with Marseille lying in wait. However, they head into the new year on something of a poor run of form after losing three of their last four fixtures and being knocked out of the Carabao Cup following a penalty shoot-out defeat against Tottenham Hotspur.

So what business will the virtual Howe conduct as he aims to progress on a number of fronts?
