Newcastle United made it four wins on the bounce in the Premier League with an assured 4-1 victory over Southampton this weekend.

Next up for Newcastle is a Carabao Cup clash with Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening, but before then, there is still plenty of Premier League transfer speculation to get through. Check out the latest below...
Leeds United could ‘definitely’ have an interest in signing Rennes defender Christopher Wooh after the World Cup if the centre-back impresses for Cameroon, according to Ed Aarons. He said: “There are quite a few teams that could do with a defender like him. I mean, Leeds definitely springs to mind. Leicester, as well.” (GIVEMESPORT)
Newcastle United will be running to sign Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk over the coming months, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke. He said: “For sure they’re in there. It’s going to be very hard, I think, for Newcastle to persuade Mudryk to move to St. James’ Park. I’m sure Mudryk will be looking to join one of Europe’s elite clubs right now with the form that he’s shown for Shakhtar, especially in the Champions League this season. So, he’s not going to be short of takers, you’ve got the likes of Arsenal and other clubs in the Premier League as well as clubs across Europe who I’m sure are interested in Mudryk.” (GIVEMESPORT)
