Social media platforms have been awash with nervous fans after the transfer sagas of Sven Botman and Hugo Ekitike continue to play out in the public domain.

But one thing is for sure, whatever happens with particular deals, the Magpies will end the summer stronger than they started it.

Eddie Howe has already moved to recruit Matt Targett on a permanent basis after exercising a £15million clause in his loan agreement from Aston Villa.

A number of players, of course, have been linked as United fans eagerly await news on who will be joining their football club.

NewcastleWorld, bearing in mind the latest rumours, takes a look at the players that could join Newcastle this summer - and those that probably won’t.
