All The Newcastle Transfers Completed Last Month

Newcastle spent a net of £20.5M on transfers last month in the January transfer window, and that’s not including loan fees – they may cancel themselves out.

We brought two players Rafa wanted through the door – 24-year-old Atlanta United playmaker Miguel Almiron in a record transfer fee for Newcastle.

We also brought in Antonio Barreca from Monaco, and he will challenge for the left-back starting position.

We’ve included some of our U23 players who are getting first-team experience on loan.

    You’re right, we’re spoilt for choice at CB. None of those players is a liability and it is great to not worry when anyone’s injured. Shame to have to sell someone in order to strengthen up front, but that’s how it probably is.

    Going forward we do need serious strengthening, no doubt. But, sometimes a super talented, pacy player can make the difference. So, if we find and buy one such player is probably better.

    Sky news headline, now: Newcastle are top spenders in the window.

    So the money for the purchases came from a loan rather than the fat mans wallet, and the loan fees in outgoings come into the clubs coffers. Benitez gets his number 10 and left back and may think about a one year contract deal hoping for a summer sale of the club. Sharp cookie is our owner there’s no doubt, please god we are still a premier club and someone stumps up

    I’m guessing due to the constraints of Ashley grudgingly having to spend something (or risk looking like even more of a toss pot to the masses) one flair player for £20m and one left back on loan is half decent business. Ideally would have liked Batshuayi or even Austin on loan.

    The fact he’s let Lazaar and Aarons go is irrelevant as they wouldn’t have got a game, and Murphy will be surplus to requirements now that Ritchie, Kenedy or Atsu can play left wing, being that Berecca is a more solid left back if started ahead of a Dummett.

    If Rafa goes to a 4-4-2 or similar then I can see Schar being used as a holding midfielder in the absence of Diame, whilst Ki and Shelvey due back soon, as is Muto from international duty. Add in Almiron as a no 10 and all of a sudden the team looks completely different. A few half decent options from the bench too.

    This would be my team:
    Yedlin — Lascelles — Fernandez/Dummett— Berecca
    ———Shelvey— Longstaff — Ritchie

    Sorry Joselu, no space on my bench either! Shame you didn’t go to China this window.
