There have now been 23 confirmed incoming Premier League transfers.

Things are hotting up as we reach the final stretch of the January transfer window.

The Mkhitaryan swap for Sanchez has attracted most headlines this week, those deals going through after much negotiation.

However, at the relegation end of things, there has also been major moves.

Both Brighton (£14m Locadia) and Huddersfield (£12m Pritchard) have once again broken their transfer records with deals this month, Huddersfield also bringing in Terence Kongolo in on loan from Monaco.

Stoke have also now brought in two players, whilst Crystal Palace have done the same this week.

Newcastle broke their duck with a loan move for 21 year old Kenedy from Chelsa but the mythical ‘£20m striker’ is still yet to arrive…

Yesterday saw serious moves from two of Newcastle’s other relegation rivals.

Southampton have completed a deal for around £20m to bring attacking player Guido Carrillo to St Mary’s, whilst West Ham have brought in Joao Mario on loan, a midfielder who cost Inter Milan £35m only 18 months ago.

Clubs at the bottom spending serious cash to improve their survival chances, with only five days until the last day of the window, will Newcastle follow suit?

The January transfer window closes in England at 11pm on Wednesday 31 January, the same as France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

  • JonMag

    looking good the bet on Newcastle having the lowest expenditure in this window

    • Peaky Magpie

      Aye and looking more cert relegation is looming.

      • Peter Stabler

        If you think it is looming now……

        • Peaky Magpie

          I know exactly what you’re saying…

    • Jezza

      Yes there are some things in life you can always rely on.

    • HarryHype59

      From Ashley’s perspective, that is what makes a good window.

    • Rich Lawson

      Is that with BetVictor ?

  • ghostrider

    Here’s the silly part.
    Now bear with me on this.
    We don’t need to go into any transfer market in January.
    We have all the players we need right here in the squad.

    All are capable of getting us out of the mire and all are ready made and available to just get on with it.

    You see all those other panic buys by clubs?
    You know, players like this one I’ll quote.
    “West Ham have brought in Joao Mario on loan, a midfielder who cost Inter Milan £35m only 18 months ago.”
    ………………………………..
    West ham have loaned a 35 million showboating flop who will soon by crying his heart out.
    The panic buys and loans will get better and better as the days narrow down.

    You know what I don’t want?
    I don’t want to see some has been or injury prone numpty paraded before us as some sort of Rafa capture who takes the place of a player that’s going to Rafa graft much better.
    Because this team is not built for showboaters.
    It’s built on caution.
    It’s built on the emphasis of GRAFT.

    Unless Rafa is willing to alter his mindset then there’s no point bringing in strikers that are no better than what we have sitting out in the cold.

    • GlasgowMag

      totally disagree. It’s clear we need a striker than can put the ball in the net we are making the chances but with our current strikers we are unable to covert. I think the current players would also get a boost from fresh blood, if he doesn’t invest then I fear we are doomed!!

      • ghostrider

        We aren’t really making the chances as such.
        yeah on odd occasions we get the odd cluster which generally get wasted.
        Here’s the problem though.
        We spend so much time being cautious, it kills the confidence when we do get into good positions.

        If you balance a team out then your opposition has to also balance out against you.
        If you play Rafa cautious then you’re giving the impetus to the opposition to put you under the cosh for the majority of the game leaving little scrapings offensively that have to be snapped up or else.

        The more chances you give the better chance of scoring one or two or many as time goes on, because confidence builds.
        Rafa sends out his teams with a ” concentrate on defending the 0-0 and be careful when going forward.”

        It’s a passion killer and is clearly not working, except to make us look like we don’t get tinked when we’re beaten.

        Not acceptable no matter which way it’s looked at.
        We deserve to be entertained…win, lose or draw.

        • Peter Stabler

          I see it as – we sit deep and compact let them have the ball, when they are on the halfway line with their clumsy defenders on the ball get a foot in and burst into the space create a chance and miss.

      • Jezza

        Best not to get involved in a debate with him. He is a wind up merchant who has been trolling this forum under multiple ID’s for years. He is not a Newcastle supporter, he is a season ticket holder at Old Trafford and he works in a S***s D****t shop.

        • HarryHype59

          Like Clarko?

          • Jezza

            He is Clarko as well as Oooh bobbi fleckman and Monkseaton Magpies. It is the same two brothers from Manchester who are behind all those ID’s as well as others in the past such as “alan pardews black and white army” and “Vodka Magpie”.

          • Peter Stabler

            Lordy that is really properly sad. Bigging up the Fat Oaf for kicks.

        • GlasgowMag

          cheers Jezza for the heads up

  • Alex

    Clubs buying to survive???

    Who’d have thought that? Actually, only one person did. And, it would have cost that person a lot less if he’d done it properly in the summer.

  • Desree

    Putting together a bid. Sting, Jimmy Nail, The Viz, Lighthouse family, cheryl Cole, mark knopfler, little mix and the first season stars off geordie shore want f all to do with it.

    Micky Quinn is prepared to put the shirt on and Kenny wharton has lent me a fiver till next week.

    Lets face it. No one wants us, no one likes us and Fatty is here forever!

    • Rich Lawson

      And Ant’ has a big divorce settlement coming up !

  • guest

    The only club i.can think of anywhere that isn’t trying its best. And never has whilst he’s been here.
    that’s an absolute disgrace
