Newcastle certainly like unloading players in January, and Davide Santon has moved on loan to Inter-Milan with an option for the Italian club to make the deal permanent at the end of the season, and his girlfriend Chloe Sanderson has taken a swipe at Newcastle by saying they are ruining the club because they are only interested in profits and not the players.
Chloe may be close to the truth there.
Gael Bigirimana may join Rangers on loan
The three youngsters who may leave on loan today to Rangers FC – that’s Mike Ashley’s other club – are said to be Gael Bigirimana, Kevin Mbabu and Haris Vuckic, to strengthen the Rangers squad.
Rangers are a massive 16 points behind leaders Hearts in the Championship, but the 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed sides in the Championship are in a play off with the 11th placed team (2nd bottom) of the Scottish Premier League, to see which club gets the second vacant spot in Scotland’s top division.
So there’s still hope that Rangers will be in the Premier League next season, and a chance to get back into Europe again, which we assume to be the main reason for Ashley’s interest in the famous Scottish club.
It wouldn’t surprise us one little but if all three players move out on loan today, but they better take their winter woollies with them.
If Mike Ashley continues his interest and investment in Rangers FC, and is allowed to do that by the Scottish FA, we suppose we could see players moving between the two clubs in the future.
So this is the first of those deals, with three young Newcastle players potentially moving north of the border for the rest of the season.
We don’t know if this is good or bad.
