Many Newcastle United fans have flocked to a transfer news update that recently emerged on social media.

Lee Ryder recently wrote an article for the Chronicle, saying that the Magpies are likely to rely on loan signings in the upcoming January transfer window. The piece stated that there is a feeling at the club that the current squad at Newcastle is a capable one and signing players on loan and saving the January budget for the next summer transfer window is something that the Toon could look to do.

This update was relayed on Twitter by the Chronicle recently and many Newcastle fans began talking about it.

The report goes on to claim that Newcastle are currently drawing up a list of potential loan options for January. One of the players happens to be Manchester United’s Brandon Williams. It is stated that the Magpies are ready to listen to offers for the duo of Rolando Aarons and Christian Atsu.

Easy one to get us underway, in what month during 2019 was Steve Bruce appointed Newcastle manager?

It has been reported that the club has been losing a lot of revenue and that has been considered in the club’s budget for the January window. Some other Toon fans also discussed this update.

Can we get a new manager on loan then?

Can we loan out for a new manager

These Newcastle fans are clearly fuming at the club’s plans for January and some of them are also not happy about Steve Bruce.

In the summer transfer window, the Magpies spent £34.88 million on transfers. In January 2020,  the club didn’t sign a single player on a permanent basis and all the signings were loan deals – Valentino Lazaro, Danny Rose and Nabil Bentaleb.

So going by recent examples, the Magpies aren’t spenders in January and now that their finances have been impacted, it is even tougher to see them spend next month.
