Steve Bruce planning to sign striker & centre-back if these 4 players are sold – The Telegraph

Steve Bruce is hoping to bring in another striker and a centre-back before the transfer window slams shut, according to Luke Edwards.

As explained below by The Telegraph’s North-East reporter, Bruce is still trying to bring in fresh faces – but he admits that FOUR players may have to leave the club in order to make space for new arrivals.

These include Christian Atsu, Henri Saivet, Rolando Aarons and DeAndre Yedlin, with Bruce is hoping to receive offers for all of the above in a bid to ‘realistically’ bring in a few loan signings later this month:

We certainly a need another striker – with this being an area that soon lacks goals and reliable options (Carroll and Gayle rarely stay fit and Joelinton isn’t a no.9) if you take our new £20m man Callum Wilson out of the equation.

Also, with Fabian Schar out of favour (and injured), Paul Dummett also sidelined with a reoccurring hamstring issue and Florian Lejeuene leaving on loan, it’s easy to see why Bruce is eager to land another centre-back after a deal for Arsenal’s Rob Holding stalled.

Hopefully the outcasts up for sale – as well as the isolated Achraf Lazaar – are able to find new teams where they are guaranteed first team football, not that it’ll be easy to move a few of them on while they remain under contract and earning good money at NUFC.

They’re financial burdens to Newcastle and are hampering our freedom in the transfer market.

  1. What Steve has to get across to Ashleyis the fact that these massive contracts are causing problems.
    Surely 3 year deals with options + options is fat more sinsible.
    Why won’t Ashley see sense…!


  2. So Steve Bruce is planning to pull off THESE two signings – but THESE two signings don’t actually have names?

    More click bait Olly?

    And while we are on the subject – why do bloggers and hacks insist that the transfer window SLAMS shut?
    It’s like the doors on the Metro – we know they are going to close. It’s never unexpected, and it’s not sudden. They don’t SLAM.

    Whatever happened to the decent thought provoking opinion articles you used to do, instead of just rehashing something you read somewhere else?
