Today we are asking Newcastle fans what their expectations are for this January transfer window.
Rafa Benitez said back in December that ideally he wanted all new signings to be completed by 15 January and failing that, by 20 January at the very latest.
We are now in the 11th day of the January transfer window and no action so far.
The only action as such, has been younger players heading out on loan deals for the second half of the season, such as Adam Armstrong going to Blackburn.
Pessimists will point to the fact that 10 days have already gone with no new players coming in and only four days, or nine days, depending on how you see it, until Rafa’s transfer deadline.
Optimists will point to Mike Ashley is now back off holiday and still 20 days to go until the final day of the window.
A range of options below, from the most optimistic to the most pessimistic.
Take your pick.
