It’s not a bad bet that Newcastle would be scouting players right now and trying to line up some good players we can bring in during January.
Danny Ings – Newcastle interested
We reported earlier today that Newcastle are tracking 21 year-old Ipswich Town left back Tyrone Ming, and the former Southampton Academy player was the Championship Player of the Month last month and is playing well in East Anglia.
And it wouldn’t surprise us if Newcastle put in a bid for the player in January.
There was news yesterday – for about the fifth weekend in a row – this time in the Star – that we will try to bring in former striker Andy Carroll in January.
The reason that story keeps cropping up, is that Andy may find it difficult to get his place back in the Hammers side when he retunrs form injury, with new striker signings Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia both playing well – and Andy is also on huge wages in London.
But Andy’s agent, West Ham and Andy himself have said that will not happen, but you never know, and we think bringing in Andy on a loan deal inn January could be a possibility, depending on his situation early next year.
There were reports over the weekend that Newcastle want to bring Jamaal Lascelles back from his loan spell at Nottingham Forest, since we have only three center-backs available this season, and one of them – Mike Williamson – was injured last week.
While that would be a decent move as a back up – the news that Steven Taylor could go the other way makes no sense – why would we let an experienced PL player leave, when you are short of cover in that position?
But Newcastle let Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa leave at the end of the summer transfer window, which put us into this position in the first place. 🙁
And the Mail on Sunday reported that long time striker target 22 year-old Danny Ings, is still refusing to sign a new contract extension at Burnley, and he will become a free agent next summer.
There’s a decent possibility that Newcastle could offer Burnley a decent fee for him in January, so the Lancashire club get at least something for their player, rather than nothing next summer.
And it will depend on how Burnley are positioned in the league, and if they are in with a chance of survival in January, it’s unlikely they will want to sell one of their best players half way through the season.
Not many clubs like doing that – with Newsletter being the exception.
We expect Newcastle to bring in some players in January, and here are four players we could be lining up.
