Newcastle would like to send impressive young striker Ivan Toney out on loan so he can get some first team games under his belt after he played 60 games with 13 goals for Northampton Town.
Ivan has played 3 times for the Newcastle first team including his Premier League derby late in the game against Chelsea on Saturday, when he replaced Aleksandar Mitrovic after 85 minutes.
Ivan Toney – Newcastle want a loan deal for 19 year-old
It´s likely that Ivan will go out on a short-term loan so Ivan could still be available to play for Newcastle later in the season.
Things are different as far as French U21 striker Emmanuel Riviere is concerned, and Newcastle want to keep him as part of the first team squad once he returns to fitness following his knee injury.
Manu is expected to return to training in about three weeks after he had a small operation on his injured knee in Paris.
Riviere is close to ending up the way Remy Cabella ended up – as a failure at Newcastle.
But the 25 year-old Frenchman still has the rest of the season to impress on Tyneside although he is now the fourth striker behind Mitrovic, Perez and Cisse in the pecking order at Newcastle.
Wolves were said to be interested in a loan deal for Riviere because their winger/striker Nouha Dicko is out for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury suffered in late August.
Bu that will not happen.
