We don’t think we will get many – if any – players through the door in this January transfer window – but if we do get players in – they are likely to be good up and coming young players , who can improve on Tyneside.
Dele Alli – 18 year-old MK Dons midfielder
And there is a report in Goal today that Newcastle are trying to bring MK Dons central midfielder Dele Alli into the club this month, and we have been linked with the youngster for about a year now.
The 18 year-old 6’2″ tall player looks like a great player in the making, so if Newcastle can get him to Newcastle, either this month or in the summer, it would be a coup for the club.
Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Manchester United are just three of some top clubs who are said to be after the youngster, and Dele has scored 10 goals in 28 appearances this season, and he was a star man in the MK Dons 4-0 humiliation of Manchester United in the Capital One Cup back in August.
The attacking midfielder has played a total of 71 times for his club with 18 goals, and there was news in early December that Newcastle United had beaten off other top clubs, and were expected to win the race to sign the youngster.
Alli looks set to leave the MK Dons, who are pushing for promotion from League One and are currently in 3rd position on 48 points from 24 games, and they are 6 points behind second top Bristol City and an automatic promotion spot.
But we would be very surprised if his club are willing to let their young star player leave this month, so Newcastle may have to wait until the summer.
Dele has played for England at the U17, U18 and U19 levels – and recently got a call-up for the England U21 side – and he is regarded as one of the best young talents in England and made his debut for MK Dons as a 16 year-old.
Alli seems to be one of a number of young English players Newcastle have been linked with over the last twelve months.
He would be a great signing for Newcastle if we can get him to Tyneside.
