2024 January transfer window final Newcastle United count – One in and seven out
The 2024 (Winter) January transfer window closed at 11pm on 1 February 2024.
From around mid-January onwards, speculation had been rife of potential major transfer action, particularly on who might leave St James’ Park, in order to allow FFP freedom to bring an incoming signing or two.
However, as we entered the very final stages of this January transfer window, that speculation appeared to have faded away to just faint hopes of loans incoming.
So with the window having slammed shut finally, how did the 2024 January transfer window end for Newcastle United?
Here are ‘all’ the ins and outs.
Alfie Harrison – Eddie Howe had already confirmed last week that agreement on his signing had been made. Only though on deadline day did Newcastle United finally put out their official statement detailing the signing for the usual ‘undisclosed’ fee. However, the media in Manchester claimed that whilst Newcastle had paid only a ‘nominal’ fee for the 18 year old midfielder, it was claimed that if United sell Harrison in the future, Man City will be entitled to 40 per cent of the profit.
