According to Times journalist George Caulkin, Newcastle United have plenty of irons in the fire as they attempt to bring in some January reinforcements to aid Rafa Benitez’s promotion push.
Plenty of irons in the fire for #Nufc – winger + midfielder the targets – but yet to decide whether loans/fees make most sense this month.

The Toon Army are said to be casting keen eyes over both midfield and winger targets as they look to keep up with Championship leaders Brighton and Hove Albion.
Top brass at St. James’ Park are also believed to be deciding whether loans and their relevant fees are worth it this month ahead of what is hopefully a quick-fire return to the proverbial Promised Land.
The January transfer market is a notoriously difficult place to find value for money and it’s important Benitez brings in potential Premier League quality.
