Newcastle United fans have been reacting to claims surrounding two possible new signings ahead of their clash this weekend in the Premier League.
Newcastle are finally getting things moving when it comes to the January transfer window. They announced the signing of Kieran Trippier last week, and have more recently made the signing of Chris Wood official as well.
But they aren’t going to stop there, and according to journalist Dean Jones, Newcastle fans might not have to wait long for the next signings to come through the door. Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones claimed that the club were hoping to get deals for both Hugo Ekitike and Diego Carlos completed before this weekend’s game with Watford.
The game itself is a relegation six-pointer, with Watford just two places above Eddie Howe’s men in the table, so getting these two players in on time would be a major boost for Newcastle United.
When the news was relayed to them by @NUFC360 on Twitter, there was a sense of excitement going around at how close they could possibly be to getting these deals over the line:
Will Newcastle be relegated?
It is a race against time, however, with players needing to be registered by midday the day before a game, so there isn’t a lot of time left for them to be eligible for the match against the Hornets.
