But who could be on the move? A number of names have been linked with St James’s Park and, indeed, moves away from the Magpies. Scroll down and click through the pages to see FIFTEEN deals the Magpies could push through in January, both IN and OUT.
1. Dwight Gayle
The striker is part of Steve Bruce's plans but has barely featured since he returned to fitness. West Brom are keen - and United could cash in, if the Baggies stump up around £15m.

2. Lewis Gibson - Everton
Left in 2017 for around £1million rising to £6million but has failed to break into the Everton first-team. Out of contract in the summer and is reportedly looking for an escape route, with United listed as being keen.

3. Yoshinori Muto
He's unhappy at not playing and looking for a way out. It's no surprise mind. Has made little to no impact since arriving last summer.

4. Ibrahima Sissoko - Strasbourg
The combative midfielder is reportedly being lined up for a January swoop as United again look to Ligue 1 for inspiration.
