The ‘big six’ loan deals NUFC could look to strike ahead of awkward January transfer window

With the threat of relegation staring our new owners in the face following our winless start to the season, it could be a real challenge attracting the right player to Newcastle United this winter.

January is a notoriously tough window, with clubs often reluctant to sell and fees inflated, however it’s been made all the more awkward this year due to our precarious league position.

As a result, some have suggested that loan signings – which include options to buy should we stay up – could be pursued over expensive permanent deals which could backfire should the worst happen.

With two domestic loan slots available to us, we’ve looked at the wasted talents and fringe men struggling for game time at ‘big six’ sides who might be of interest next month:


  • Rob Holding – CB
  • Eddie Nketiah – ST
  • Ainsley Maitland-Niles – CM / LB / RB
  • Callum Chambers – RB / CB / CDM
  • Cedric Soares – RB
  • Mohamed Elneny – CDM


  • Ross Barkley -CAM
  • Malang Sarr – CB

Man Utd

  • Dean Henderson – GK
  • Donny van de Beek – CM
  • Jesse Lingard – CAM

Man City

  • Nathan Ake – CB


  • Nat Phillips – CB
  • Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain – CM / CAM
  • Divock Origi – ST
  • Takumi Minamino – CF / LW / RW


  • Davinson Sanchez – CB
  • Joe Rodon – CB
  • Harry Winks – CM
  • Dele Alli – CAM
  • Bryan Gil – CAM / LW / RW

  1. Of course we need to sign players but by accident Eddie has found our best centre back combination. He’s seen from his own eyes rather than the drivel in his ears from Jones that Schar and Fernandez are our best defenders by a country mile. The remarkable tail end run of last season occurred when our skipper was injured! We need quality full backs in January, a defensive midfielder unless Eddie’s eyes again saw Hayman is worth his place every week, aright winger and back up strikers. Great improvement already since Eddie arrived. Can we stay up… its one hell of an ask but let’s get behind the coaches and players. Howay the Lads!
