Transfer forecasting

Ben Jacobs, a transfer insider, has spoken about what Newcastle could do in the January transfer window.

“If they’re going to target someone, it’s probably going to be another centre-back,” he explained to CaughtOffside.


“They could use some protection for Sven Botman.” It goes without saying that extending Bruno Guimaraes’ contract is critical. Could they also look for new objectives? That could be something to think about during the summer. However, it is critical to remember that Newcastle cannot break the bank due to Financial Fair Play. They cannot just change their model because they have previously entered Europe.


“Now that they have Champions League football, players will demand higher wages, but Newcastle have done well to avoid having a single high-earning player.” They have to be cautious, which is why I believe they will have a calmer January.”
