It’s been another frustrating summer for Newcastle fans.
Could there still be some deals to be had? Steve Bruce still hasn’t given up hope of a loan swoop before 11pm.
Deadline Day always brings with it a number of surprising last minute deals that may or may not go through but there are already plenty of rumours that have been doing the rounds for days or even weeks and, in some cases, months.
The Magpies are understood to be seeking defensive reinforcements before the window shuts and are favourites with the bookies to secure a deal for an experienced England international that more than one Premier League club have been tracking.
Elsewhere, Liverpool may yet bolster their squad by swooping for a player from a Premier League rival. For Everton, Rafa Benitez looks set to be active in the last few hours of the window as he bids to bolster his squad and build on an impressive start to the season.
The London clubs, particularly West Ham, could be busy – there looks to be work to do at Arsenal, also – and at the bottom end of the market there may yet be deals to be done at Burnley and Brighton.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s headline grabbing return to Manchester United could mean more than one player heads for the exit door at Old Trafford.
In particular, could Leeds be set to finally complete a deal nearly 1,000 days in the making after missing out on the same player in the last seconds of January 2019’s transfer deadline day?
A few big names could be set to depart the Premier League and further their careers elsewhere in Europe. It certainly promises to be a busy time.
