Newcastle United transfer news: Who could be heading to Tyneside this January?

Oddschecker bring you the latest Leeds transfer news, rumours and gossip. Who could be making their way to Newcastle United this January?

After a fairly uninspiring start to the 2020/21 Premier League season, Newcastle United find themselves in 15th with 8 points between them and the relegation zone. A recent dip in form has seen Newcastle take just 2 points from their last 5 fixtures and a new signing could be just what Steve Bruce needs to reinvigorate his squad.

Newcastle have been without key players Jamal Lascelles and Allan Saint-Maximin, after it was reported that they were suffering from the long term effects of coronavirus. Some extra squad depth could give the Magpies a boost in the second half of the season.

Phil Jones is currently Newcastle’s most likely signing, according to the odds

Manchester United centre-back Phil Jones is reported to be at the top of Steve Bruce’s transfer targets at odds of 8/1. After being left out of Manchester United’s 25-man squad, Phil Jones hasn’t played yet this season.

Although scoring goals as opposed to conceding them has been more of a problem for the Magpies this season, they could certainly do with reinforcements throughout the squad.

Newcastle United Transfer Rumours: Who else is on their radar?

Newcastle haven’t found the back of the net regularly enough this season and their lack of attacking creativity has seen them linked with the likes of Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard. At 12/1, Lingard appears to be a more likely acquisition and is a player who could provide some much-needed quality in the final third.

Dele Alli is priced as a long shot at 25/1. Alli is a player that would without a doubt improve Newcastle's faltering attacking line, however, with a number of top clubs keeping tabs on his movements, it will be difficult for Newcastle to secure his signature.
