13 players that Newcastle United could target if Arsenal, Man Utd & Co don’t block transfer plans - gallery

Newcastle United transfers: The Magpies could be blocked from making loan signings from Saudi Arabia in January.

Premier League clubs will vote on whether to implement a temporary ban to stop teams loaning players from clubs under the same ownership. The vote is set to take place on Tuesday November 21 and would be immediately put into practice ahead of the forthcoming January transfer window.

If passed, the rule would mean Newcastle United are unable to sign players from Al-Hilal, Al-Ahli, Al-Nassr and Al-Ittihad on-loan during the upcoming January transfer window.

Here, we take a look at 13 players that Newcastle United could target in January, but may be blocked from signing if the new rule is passed on November 21:
