Newcastle United Deadline Day RECAP: Joe Willock loan deal done for Magpies as DeAndre Yedlin exits
Steve Bruce is looking to bolster his midfield options ahead of the 11pm deadline tonight, with Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham among those to be linked with a move to Tyneside.
Meanwhile, Newcastle United’s DeAndre Yedlin is set to join Galatasaray – after being given permission to travel to Turkey.
The defender is out of contract at the club in the summer – and he had demanded “clarity” over his future this month.
And Watford are targeting a loan swoop for Matty Longstaff ahead of the 11pm Monday deadline, it is reported.
It could prove a busy final 48-hours for Newcastle in the transfer market, with a number of possible ins and outs ahead of the deadline.
And reports down south suggest Watford are targeting a move for Longstaff, they have previously been credited with a strong interest in the midfielder.

The defender won’t be coming back
Former Newcastle United loan defender Jetro Willems has shut down talk of a January return to the club.
The Netherlands international defender has been linked with a return this month – and the Gazette understands the player was offered to United by Eintracht Frankfurt.
But reservations about the impact the knee injury suffered by Willems last January meant Newcastle did not act when given the chance to take the player on a permanent deal.
