Rafael Benitez outlines further transfer plans for Newcastle United

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has gone on to reveal that he is looking to make a couple more signings before the end of the summer transfer window.

Newcastle United have evidently been very active in the transfer market so far this summer and the signings of Ciaran Clark and Mohamed Diame recently means that the Magpies have spent close to £50 million on recruiting new players.

The splash in the market has equipped Newcastle with arguably the strongest squad overall in the Championship and many now believe that the Magpies should be able to win the title without too much trouble during the upcoming campaign.

While it remains to be seen as to whether Newcastle’s expensive recruits will be able to prove their worth, manager Rafael Benitez is in no mood of relaxing as of yet and the Spanish manager has now gone on to state that he is looking to make further additions to his squad.

As quoted by the Shields Gazette, Benitez stated that he is still looking to find the right balance for Newcastle and admitted that he is planning to bring in at least two new players to St. James’ Park before the summer transfer window slams shut.

The 56-year-old replied when asked if he is keen on any new signings, “Hopefully so. We know we need something. I’m really pleased with the squad and the players.

“But we know we have to bring something that will give us more balance. I would like two or three more players if it is possible.”
