Newcastle United transfer news: The FIVE stars linked with Magpies January switch
The January transfer window is in full swing!
Here, we take a look at the five deals that the bookies are linking Newcastle United with during the winter window – and the context behind them:
Dele Alli – 25/1
Newcastle United are priced at 25/1 to conclude a permanent deal for Tottenham's England international attacking midfielder Dele Alli during the window.
The former MK Dons man has fallen out-of-favour with Spurs boss Jose Mourinho.
However, Alli is said to 'pushing for a move to Paris Saint-Germain', according to Fabrizio Romano via the Daily Star.
Indeed, the French club are 4/7 favourites to sign the 24-year-old, who seems set for a reunion with former boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Crystal Palace (12/1), Everton (12/1), Manchester United (14/1), Liverpool (16/1), Leeds (25/1), Real Madrid (25/1) and Southampton (33/1) also feature in the betting.
Danny Rose – 16/1
Danny Rose – who was on loan at St James’s Park last season – is priced at 16/1 to sign a permanent contract in the North-East.
Like Tottenham teammate Alli, Rose seemingly has no future in London under Mourinho, following a falling out between the pair.
However, reports suggest the former Sunderland loanee is eyeing a move abroad, despite interest from West Brom boss Sam Allardyce.
The Baggies are 5/4 favourites for his signature, with PSG (8/1), Sheffield United (8/1), Burnley (16/1), West Ham (16/1), Brighton (20/1), Crystal Palace (20/1) and Leeds United (20/1) also in the field.
His Spurs contract expires in June and could be cancelled by mutual consent.
Josh King – 18/1
Bournemouth striker Josh King is another long shot at 18/1 to link up with former Cherries teammate Callum Wilson at Newcastle.
However, reports suggest the Norway striker is looking for a stunning £120,000-a-week pay packet, which would surely price him out of a move to St James’s Park.
Newcastle, Everton (5/2), Aston Villa (14/1) and Fulham (no odds offered) are said to be watching developments as they unfold.
West Ham are leading the pack with the bookies at 10/11 with Sam Allardyce’s West Brom (8/1) are also featured.
Jesse Lingard – 20/1
Jesse Lingard – who seemingly has no future at his boyhood club Manchester United is a 20/1 contender to link with former Red Devils hero Bruce on Tyneside.
Aston Villa (8/1) have been also been linked with the England international - but there are plenty of suitors for his signature.
Indeed, Lingard is said to be weighing up a move to Sheffield United (4/1) on a six-month loan to give him regular first-team football.
Phil Jones – 8/1
The most likely of the five to make the move to Newcastle United is Manchester United’s former Blackburn Rovers midfielder Phil Jones.
Indeed, the Red Devils are reportedly ready to allow the England defender to leave on loan, while also paying a substantial portion of his £120,000-a-week wage.
The 28-year-old put pen to paper on a four-year contract in early 2019.
Burnley (6/1), West Brom (7/1) and the Magpies’ North-East rivals Middlesbrough (8/1) are all named as clubs monitoring the situation.
However, Derby County are favourites to secure his signature at 5/2, in a move which would see Jones reunited with former Old Trafford teammate Wayne Rooney, who recently took over as manager at Pride Park.
