It may seem like only five minutes since the summer transfer window slammed shut – but the winter one is just around the corner.
There’s just 113 days until the window reopens – cue the rolling yellow banner and the over-excited Sky Sports presenters.
Who could Newcastle United look to sign this winter? Here’s NINE names that are likely to be considered for the shortlist.
5. Patrick Schick - AS Roma
Reportedly turned down a move to United in the summer in favour of a switch to Germany, which failed to materialise. The Magpies added Andy Carroll, a similar type, but if they're looking to add to their frontline this could be a move that is rekindled.

6. Jayden Bogle - Derby County
The keenness to add good value youth to the ranks has seen United look at Bogle. Well-stocked at full-back but a one for the future. United are in a long queue of Premier League clubs monitoring the player.

7. Said Benrahma - Brentford
The Gazette understands this was a player considered in the summer, with United keen to snap up the best talent outside the top flight in the search for value and quality. Would not come cheap, though.

8. Garry Rodrigues - Galatasaray
Currently on loan at Fenerbahce. Would be available. The Cape Verde international winger has long been on United's hitlist.
