BREAKING: Newcastle ‘close’ to tying up loan deal for Premier League striker – BIG move from NUFC

Some big news in the last few moments, with the Times George Caulkin and the Chronicle’s Lee Ryder confirming that Newcastle are now hoping to tie up a loan deal to sign Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge until the end of the season.

The Times state that ‘the final details on a temporary switch from Liverpool are in the process of being thrashed out’, with Rafa Benitez having made a move to sign the out of favour Liverpool striker after the club failed to meet Feyenoord’s £20m asking price for Nicolai Jorgensen.

It has also been revealed by Caulkin that we could be set to pay a £1.5 million loan fee as well as £120,000 per week to cover the 28-year-old’s wages for the the remainder of the season.

A potential deal would see us beat the likes of West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United to his signature (say the Times), with

The key, of course, will be keeping Sturridge fit if this one was to be finalised before Wednesday’s deadline, however he does seem to represent the highest quality option we’ve been looking at this winter. Keep him fit and I believe he has the firepower to fire us to safety.
