There’s a very good chance that Newcastle can now do a deal for Manchester United’s goalkeeper Dean Henderson.
That’s according to the Mail and if we can get the England International to Newcastle before tomorrow night, that will further improve our defense.
The report is in the Mail, and we know Henderson is sick of playing second fiddle to Spanish International David de Gea, who has been in tremendous form this season.
Henderson has appealed to Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick to be sent out on loan, so he can start playing again in the Premier League.
Here is an excerpt from the Mail report:
“Should Henderson arrive (at Newcastle), it would rule out a loan move for United forward Jesse Lingard, as clubs cannot loan two players from the same team.”
“Henderson held talks with former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has since spoken with interim manager Ralf Rangnick, but was told he was needed with the club still in the Champions League.”
“Henderson is now expected to secure a move to Newcastle, freeing up Freddie Woodman to leave on loan.”
We had four goalkeepers listed for the first half of the season in the Premier League squad of 25, and if we expect if Henderson is signed the other two goalkeepers would be Dubravka and Darlow.
So it seems two goalkeepers would need to leave – and if Woodman leaves on loan, local lad Mark Gillespie would still not get a place in the squad.
But we cannot sign two players on loan from the same club, but it appears that Newcastle are still trying to find ways of signing Jesse Lingard, who is also desperate to play.
Newcastle could agree to take on the final six months of Lingard’s contract as a permanent signing, but would not technically be a loan.
We suppose it means Newcastle agree a fee with the Red Devils for a permanent signing of Lingard, and then we offer Lingard a 6-month contract, but whether that would be allowed by the Premier League, we don’t know.
But that’s technically possible, for sure.
Another way of doing it, that is less controversial, would be for Newcastle to sign Dean Henderson on a permanent deal and bring in Lingard on loan.
And the latest news today is that Newcastle have offered the Red Devils a £10M loan fee for Lingard.
But whether the Red Devils would let Henderson go permanently is debatable.
What do you think?

So Lingard on the way now, too?
Maybe more people can stop worrying so much now. Incredulous that people on the blog were scoring this transfer window, with marks out of 10, long before the window even closed.
Time to have a bit more faith in Staveley & co…. she has damn well-earned it. She sat in the stands and took every battering on the chin — watching that Ashley era squad — suffered it with the rest of the fans. It’s like she said, they will at some point make mistakes along the way, every club does, but what she promised, if they do get something wrong, they will work on putting it right.
She has done a magnificent job attracting players to a club in the relegation zone.
As for complaining about not having a director of football, we already know the club were looking to fill that role, but anybody with real calibre didn’t want to risk relegating one of the richest club’s in the world. That will all come in the summer if the club stays up.
Enjoy it! big things are coming.

The Last Jedi
Your racist avatar pic isn’t a great first impression to begin with, but then you display absolutely no empathy for people trapped in horrible situations. Based on what you’ve said so far it’s no wonder you can’t see the bigger picture when it comes to domestic abuse.

Get Burn and I’d say that’s mission achieved for this transfer window. Get any more than that and it will have been an excellent transfer window!
As for Lingard…gotta wonder if Greenwood’s problems will mean that Man Utd give more minutes to Lingard…

Wonder if someone will come up with a good chant for Bruno using that ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’ song (if they haven’t done so already)?

Your hypothetical situation to get Lingard in is logical and makes sense to everyone.
They’re not going to go in for that unfortunately as that’s how they fleece the least money the greedy chancers!!
Those 2 in plus Zapata and what looks like a LB/LWB and this would be the best January window since January windows began surely!!

Newcastle United are delighted to confirm the signing of Brazil international Bruno Guimarães on a four-and-a-half-year deal.
The 24-year-old midfielder joins the Magpies for an undisclosed fee from Lyon, where he has been one of the outstanding performers in Ligue 1 over the past two seasons, and will wear shirt number 39 – the number of the taxi once driven by his father.
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Guimarães started out with Audax, where he made his debut as a 17-year-old, before moving on to Brazilian top-flight side Athletico Paranaense, where he won the Copa do Brasil and the Copa Sudamericana as well as being named in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A team of the year in 2019.
He then signed for Lyon and, having won an Olympic gold medal with his country at the 2020 summer games, has earned three full caps for the Seleção. He is currently on international duty with Tite’s side and completed his medical in his homeland ahead of travelling to Newcastle next week, following Brazil’s clash with Miguel Almiron’s Paraguay on Wednesday.
“BRUNO IS A HUGELY EXCITING TALENT AND HAS BEEN ONE OF OUR PRIMARY TARGETS SO I’M DELIGHTED TO SECURE HIM. HE STRENGTHENS THE GROUP IMMEDIATELY READY FOR THE CHALLENGE AHEAD.”
Guimarães becomes head coach Eddie Howe’s third signing of the transfer window, following England international Kieran Trippier and New Zealand international Chris Wood to St. James’ Park.
Eddie Howe said: “Bruno is a hugely exciting talent and has been one of our primary targets so I’m delighted to secure him. He strengthens the group immediately ready for the challenge ahead.
“He has been one of the standout performers in France and is a full international for Brazil so I have no doubt our supporters will really enjoy watching him. We look forward to welcoming him to the club on his return from international duty.”
