Dan Ashworth is said to be ‘leaning towards’ a move to Newcastle United, with Sunday Times journalist Duncan Castles claiming he could double his wages to become our new director of football.
The current Brighton chief has reportedly been offered £2million per year to take over the reins on Tyneside and help craft our ambitious new era.
Castles also claims that the issue should be resolved “in the next few days” as the new owners look to make bold inroads at the start of a crucial January window.
There is more promising news on the player front, too…
The Sunday Times reporter has named Aaron Ramsey as one of our top January targets, stating on his latest episode of the Transfer Window podcast that the ex-Arsenal midfielder has been offered £150,000-a-week to make the switch from Juventus to St James’ Park.
31-year-old Ramsey has struggled to settle in Turin but would match the type of player that we are looking to sign to stay in the Premier League.
The Welshman has reportedly been offered a three-year deal with an option for a further year.
