The 15 players backed to join Newcastle United during the summer transfer window

More new faces are expected to arrive at St James Park this summer.

Newcastle United can reflect on a very productive start to what could be a transformative summer transfer window.

The Magpies got their business underway by securing Aston Villa left-back Matt Targett on a permanent deal after the defender impressed during a loan spell on Tyneside during the second half of last season.

Burnley and England goalkeeper Nick Pope was next through the door after United agreed a deal of around £10million to provide Martin Dubravka with increased competition.

And last week saw the long-awaited deal for Lille’s highly-rated centre-back Sven Botman finally approaching its conclusion after the Newcastle confirmed they had agreed a deal with the Ligue 1 and the move is set to be completed over the coming days.

A midfielder, a wide player and a striker are believed to be next on the agenda for Eddie Howe and the club’s recruitment staff as they finalise their preparations for the new Premier League season.

But which players have been tipped to follow Targett, Pope and Botman to Tyneside? NewcastleWorld takes a look with the help of SkyBet’s latest odds.
