Newcastle To Clear The Decks For New Players In January

Newcastle will be attempting to unload some players in January so we can bring in good players during the next transfer window and those players will enhance our squad in an attempt to avoid relegation and move up the league table.

The news is that Wolves and Charlton are said to be keen in taking French midfielder Yoan Gouffran, but it seems that the forward would rather stay at Newcastle for the rest of the season.

Gael Bigirimana – could return to Coventry

It looks like Mike Williamson could be signing full time for Wolves in January and news that Coventry – who already have Adam Armstrong on loan – want to bring back Gael Bigirimaina who has not managed to have success on Tyneside since he signed on for us in the summer of 2012 for £1M.

29 year-old Sylvain Marveaux could be another player who is moved out on loan or permanently in January.

The end of the emergency transfer window ends on November 25th so it could be that Steve McClaren moves out some additional players on loan before then – but we have to ensure we do not deplete our own squad too much – in case we pick up more injuries.

So we may see one or two of our players sent out on loan before November 25th and then the next time they can move out on loan or permanently is on New Years Day.

Players need to be moved out to leave some places in the Premier League list of 25 players Newcastle need to identify for the second half of the Premier League season.

Comments welcome.

Personal Note – our hopes and prayers go out to those in Paris tonight for the terrorist attacks that have just taken place there – this terrible situation is still ongoing.
