Rafa Benitez wants one new player brought in and the loan deal of Brendan Galloway – the 20 year-old Zimbabwe born Everton left-back – completed before this coming Saturday.
If Brendan Galloway does come to Newcastle on a loan deal, it says that Rafa Benitez thinks he needs competition for Paul Dummett and Sadio Haidara, our only two specialized left-backs, who also have poor injury records.
But it also means that Rafa believes Brendan will play quite a number of games for Newcastle next season – he could be first choice at left-back – otherwise what’s the use of Everton sending him out on loan?
Brendan Galloway – coming in on loan
The news is that Newcastle are working on a loan fee for the exciting young talent, but want him part of the squad before Saturday’s game against Huddersfield Town.
Newcastle will also pay Brendan’s wages while he is with Newcastle next season.
The other news is that Real Madrid have withdrawn their interest in Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko and there is still a chance that Moussa will not get his move to his dream club this summer.
It’s a move that he has been working on since the Euro 2016 Championships ended on July 10th with France losing to Portugal in the final.
It may be that Moussa will be playing in England’s second division for the coming season with a massive fee of £35M put on his head by Newcastle.
We’ll have to wait and see whether he gets his move and that may be until the final day of the transfer window on August 31st before we find out.
