All the latest transfer news and speculation involving Newcastle United.
Newcastle United are currently one of seven Premier League sides who remain unbeaten in the top flight this season.

But how are Eddie Howe’s men faring in the transfer market?
Check out the latest Premier League speculation below...
Newcastle United have informed Borussia Monchengladbach that they are ready to spend £29.6m to recruit French midfielder Manu Kone. The Magpies are said to have made the player a priority target. (L’Equipe)
Leeds United have rejected a second bid from Newcastle United for winger Jack Harrison. A previous offer from the Magpies, worth up to £20m, was rejected earlier in the transfer window. The latest proposal is thought to have been worth more than that initial figure, but the Whites’ valuation of the player remains a lot higher. (The Athletic)
The situation surrounding Christian Pulisic’s future at Chelsea is likely to be resolved “soon”, according to Fabrizio Romano. The USA international has emerged as a target for the likes of Newcastle United and Manchester United in recent weeks, but the Italian transfer guru does not believe that the player will move to Old Trafford. He said: “A lot continues to be written about Christian Pulisic’s future, and I expect this could be resolved soon. Still, I wouldn’t bet on him ending up at Old Trafford. Manchester United’s only request for information for Pulisic was a week ago, but Chelsea would not want to accept a loan deal with an important club like Man Utd. Newcastle have also wanted him on loan for months, certainly a decision will be made soon.” (Caught Offside)
