Newcastle Brown Ale, some black and white wine and Guinness (good things come to those who wait)... this has to be a takeover hint from Mike Ashley’s Premier League-tackling QC!?!?

There’s still time for some business, but it’s likely to be OUT not IN at Newcastle United

Not a good afternoon for the United kids...

Miles Starforth: Newcastle’s business looks to be DONE for the window

Looks like the only business we'll see today is the signing of Rodrigo Vilca from Peruvian side Deportivo Municipal. The club had been looking at signing a defender on loan, but there aren't too many options out there. Domestic deals, however, can be done until October 16.

Could this potentially kick-start some action on Tyneside?

Newcastle United have been operating an ‘outs before ins’ policy for the final few weeks of the transfer window - but the problem has been getting players to depart.

Steve Bruce wanted another two new faces through the door in an ideal world this summer, but has been hamstrung by the fact United are unable to shift the likes of Christian Atsu, Henri Saivet and DeAndre Yedlin.

But could a deadline day shift for the latter open up doors on Tyneside?
