Welcome to our daily rubbish Newcastle transfer news service, featuring all the players NUFC are ‘buying’ (including proposed loan deals) this summer.

We will update you each day and try to keep you abreast of all these exciting transfers that aren’t going to happen (as well as the handful that hopefully will…).

With 65 days until the transfer window closes, there is a very deep barrel being scraped, with the one more name we have to add to the running total today.

This addition making it a new total of 79 Newcastle have been linked with (Only 3 days until pre season begins and 12 days until the first friendly).

Step forward Stewart Downing.

Yes, The Star has conjured up an exclusive that will see Mike Ashley signing up the West Ham winger who turns 31 next month. The story goes, that Newcastle are willing to pay £5m for Downing, with him no doubt expecting a four year contract and his wages matched.

Let us assume Stewart Downing is on say eighty grand a week – remember Liverpool paid £20m(!!!) for him four years ago and the Hammers were said to have at least matched his wages when they took him on.

That would be a four year contract on wages of £4m a season, which including the transfer fee would be over £20m for a player with no resale value – a typical Mike Ashley signing, not!

Thrown into the story is the usual Andy Carroll nonsense as well – are there two signings the Newcastle owner is less likely to go for?

To try and keep some kind of order, the players are listed in alphabetical order by surname, then first/other names, the club they are/were at when Newcastle were linked with them, then finally the club they have ended up signing for (if any).

Please let us know of any that we have missed out as we go along and especially if you notice if any on the list actually sign for a club and we haven’t added that information.
