Besiktas aim to derail Newcastle transfer plans

Reports in Turkey suggest Besiktas are set to enter the race to land Tammy Abraham.

United have agreed an offer with Chelsea, and after talks with the 19-year-old a season-long loan looked set to be signed and sealed.

But no confirmation has been forthcoming, with Brighton and Leicester City said to also be in the running.

Now Fotospor, who broke news of Besiktas' interest in Aleksandar Mitrovic last week, says the club want Abraham.

Another friendly?

Newcastle are already set to face trips to Bradford and Preston this summer, but could they been heading to Spain, too?

Reports in the Spanish press claim United will take on third tier side Real Balompédica.

No date has been mentioned but it will not be on the weekend of August 5, with a home friendly against potentially Hellas Verona pencilled in.

Owls eye Hanley

Grant Hanley is set to be one of the first casualties of the Rafalution part two this summer.

And while a move to Derby County appears to be dead, Sheffield Wednesday are weighing up a bid for the Scotland international, who only signed a long-term £45,000 per week deal at St James's Park last summer.

The Sheffield Star claim that Carlos Carvalhal is keen to bolster his defensive options and is poised to step up their interest in United’s Hanley as well as Middlesbrough’s Daniel Ayala.

Roma could move for Newcastle flop

The ink is barely dry on the deal that has taken Florian Thauvin from Tyneside to the Stade Veledrome but he might already be on the move.

Roma are rumoured to be looking into the prospect of signing the Marseille winger, who had one disastrous season at United, which ended in the club's relegation to the Championship.

Ameobi could head back to North West

Bolton are keen to sign Sammy Ameobi but the player may have to lower his wage demands for any deal to be struck.

Ameobi is set to be released by United this summer, with a retained list to be released imminently.
