Liam Kennedy, Newcastle United reporter for NewcastleWorld, has been speaking to Steve Wraith on the latest episode of NUFC Matters about the Tyneside club.
With the January transfer window quickly creeping upon us, the journalist discussed a potential player the Toon are believed to be targetting.
Would Sule make a good signing in January?
And that player in question is Niklas Sule of Bayern Munich – with Kennedy revealing the Magpies to have opened talks with the Bundesliga club over the potential acquisition of the centre-back in January.
Discussing the latest news coming out of the club regarding the 26-year-old defender, Kennedy had the following to say on the potential addition to the Toon’s defence in January.
“It’s the exact fit of a type of player Newcastle are looking for in January. I’m not going to say it will happen, but there did seem some positivity around it [with] people I’ve spoken to, so we’ll have to wait and see on that one. But it’s true, there’s definitely been talks between representatives behind the scenes.”
TIF Thoughts on Sule to NUFC…
From a Newcastle point of view, this would seem a brilliant move to secure the services of a player with such a wealth of experience at the top of the German game and in the Champions League.
However, one thing which we feel is key for Newcastle going into January is being able to secure their signings early on in the window.
