Newcastle United could be prepared to change their transfer plans in the summer depending on where they finish in the league table. 

This has been suggested by the Toon correspondent Andrew Musgrove who has been speaking on the Everything is Black & White podcast.

It has been a sensational start to the 2022/23 campaign for the Magpies which has potentially ignited dreams of European football among some of the Newcastle fans.

After their impressive victory on Sunday away to Tottenham Hotspur, Eddie Howe’s side now find themselves sitting in fourth spot of the Premier League table.

And Musgrove believes a finish in a European spot would likely see Newcastle change their transfer plans with more of a focus put on the number of signings with the prospect of two games per week:

“Be interesting though, if they do finish in the top seven/top six and what that means for the summer because that then means European football, but it means playing weekend, midweek, weekend.

“And suddenly the plans, I would imagine, in the transfer window would have to be changed because your squad goes from needing to be strengthened to really then needing more bodies in to cope with the inevitable injuries that you get and tiredness from playing that many games week in, week out.”

TIF Thoughts on Musgrove’s comments…

We think this is definitely something which should be considered by the Newcastle owners if they are to achieve some form of European football for next season.

Do you think NUFC will secure European football?





Over the last two transfer windows, Newcastle have worked to improve their starting XI, however, quality from the bench will be needed if they are to progress into a European competition.

Especially for a team like Newcastle who so frequently suffer injuries to their star players, playing twice per week with their current squad would likely be a recipe for disaster.
