Starting with an easy one, how much did Joelinton cost Newcastle when he swapped for Tyneside?

The video shows reporter Keith Downie providing a short transfer update for the Toon, in which he claims that the club are interested in bringing in Brandon Williams and Hamza Choudhury on loan.

However, he also claims that Steve Bruce might change his mind because of Newcastle’s lack of goals in recent games and try to bring in a striker.

This has drawn the attention of these Newcastle fans, who are fuming with their club.

We’ve needed a CM for 4 windows and we are not going to address it again. This club stinks.”

“Ridiculous i remember they were going to spend £40 on a from france last January how can we have no money to spend. Wilson will score goals if he gets service.”

@Adam_B_White

Such a depressing update. Why would anyone want to come to Newcastle and play the way Bruce does? Williams will be looking at Lewis and thinking, ‘You’ve regressed. I’m young and want to learn and play.’ And will choose someone else”

@StagnatingNUFC

Do you think Newcastle will sign anyone?

No, we won't get anyone

No, we won't get anyone

Yes, we might get someone in

Yes, we might get someone in

Downie also confirmed that Bruce will have no budget to work with and will be looking to bring in loan players.

The two players that he mentions in his report have been linked with a move to Newcastle, but it was thought that the Williams deal was dead.

So, it will be interesting to see if anything changes on that front.

This post continued to draw in Toon fans who had their say.

He had 3 strikers on the pitch last night; it’s pointless having another striker when we can’t keep possession anywhere else on the field and have zero creativity. Callum is excellent, we need the rest of the team to help him prosper.”

@ChrisTheRegular

When will people realise? It doesn’t matter who we sign if Bruce is choosing the tactics and picking the team”

@LBRT00NFan

Pointless bringing anyone in while the manager is still there, total waste of time & money.”

@kevin_busby

So, it looks like Newcastle have some targets in mind, but as it stands, nothing looks close to happening, and it will be interesting to see if the Toon do actually sign anyone in this transfer window.
