It seems there is a good chance that Grant Hanley, Achraf Lazaar, and Jack Colback could be leaving Newcastle with the first two likely to tie up deals today.
A fee has been agreed with Norwich for Grant Hanley, and he will be undergoing his medical today, and hopefully, that deal can be announced before the day is out.
Achraf Lazaar to move on loan to Benevento
And there’s news from Italy from Gazzetta dello Sport’s journalist Nicolo Schira that Achraf Lazaar will sign a loan deal at Benevento today.

It looks like Jack Colback will be moving to Hull City on loan for the season according to the Chronicle as long as Newcastle pay half of Jack’s massive £70K/week wages, but that deal will happen – maybe today.
But as far as bringing players into the club time it could be difficult for Newcastle, with less than two full days left in the transfer window.
We had expected Kenedy to come in on loan from Chelsea once Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was signed by the Blues, but the Arsenal player has turned down the move across London.
And Newcastle have been linked with several strikers, but time is running out.
We’d also be surprised if Dwight Gayle leaves the club before tomorrow night since the best we can do is to get somebody in to replace him.
But we wanted a fourth striker in before tomorrow night, so presumably, even if we replace Gayle we’d still have only three strikers.
And as we expected, Aleksandar Mitrovic has been charged with dangerous play by the FA and is now almost certain pick up a three match ban – just what we didn’t need.
