Former Premier League player Dean Windass believes that Dele Alli would be a great signing for Newcastle.
Newcastle United were taken over in a deal worth £300m according to the Telegraph, with the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund acquiring an 80 per cent controlling stake and the Reuben brothers and Amanda Staveley gaining 10 per cent each.
Since the new owners’ arrival to the football club, there have plenty of names linked with moves to St James’ Park, with Spanish outlet Sport (via Football.London) reporting that the Magpies are reportedly interested in signing Alli from Tottenham Hotspur.
Do you think Dele Alli will sign for Newcastle United?
When quizzed on players that could join Newcastle, Windass suggested that Alli would be a good signing, telling This is Futbol: “I think Dele Alli would be a great signing as a number ten in behind whoever’s the number nine as they call it, so yeah it will be very interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens.”
The 25-year-old has featured for Tottenham on six occasions this season in the Premier League. He has just the one goal so far, taking his overall league tally for the club to 51.
Whilst Newcastle are allowed to invest £190m in January without breaking any financial fair play rules, the Telegraph reported that the planned budget is just £50m for the winter window.
