Newcastle United are due to take on Brighton & Hove Albion at St James’ Park on Saturday as Eddie Howe and his player look to keep their phenomenal run of form going.

A win for the Magpies would put even more distance between themselves and the bottom three but would also bring them to within five points of the Seagulls, something which must have seems incredibly unlikely just a few months ago given how both clubs started the 2021/22 season.

Brighton boss Graham Potter has revealed that defender Adam Webster is ‘unlikely’ to feature against the Magpies as he is still recovering from a groin issue that has kept him out of their last two games.

“Adam Webster has had a little bit of a setback with his injury so we will see how he goes this week.” Potter said. “It’s looking unlikely for Newcastle.”

Meanwhile, Allan Saint-Maximin has returned from a week-long stay in France after missing Newcastle United’s last two Premier League fixtures.

The 24-year-old was understood to have been given permission by the club to travel back to his home country to work on his rehab from a suspected calf injury.

Away from the action on the pitch, there are plenty of transfer stories doing the rounds and here are the headlines from Wednesday’ morning:
