Much of the talk surrounding Newcastle United’s transfer business naturally centres around exactly who should be brought in to aid Rafa Benitez’s promotion surge.

He’s already allowed the likes of Tim Krul, Emmanuel Riviere and Kevin Mbabu – all at different stages of their Toon careers – some time away from Tyneside and there are surely a few more candidates on the books who’d be well suited to similar treatment.
