The Lowdown: Newcastle takeover complete

The Magpies are in the money after their recent takeover and they could have a huge amount to spend on new players in January.

It could see Newcastle eventually build in the same manner as Chelsea and Manchester City, turning into one of the most successful teams in the country.

The Latest: Nakamba linked with Newcastle move

According to Football Insider, a source at Newcastle has claimed that the Tynesiders are keen on signing Nakamba, who has made 57 appearances for Villa.

The Magpies want to improve their quality in central midfield and believe that the 27-year-old could be a perfect addition in that respect. A bid of around £15m could be enough to prise the 23-cap Zimbabwe international away from Villa Park.

The Verdict: No great loss for Villa

While Nakamba has been a good performer for Villa – he has the best passing accuracy rate of anyone in the current squad this season and has been hailed as “excellent” by Dean Smith – he hasn’t been a key part of the manager’s plans in recent weeks, making only one Premier League start in 2021/22.

For that reason, he wouldn’t be a huge loss for Villa, with the likes of Douglas Luiz and John McGinn keeping him on the fringes in the Midlands.

Still, it would be preferable to keep hold of Nakamba in terms of squad depth at Villa Park, while selling him to Newcastle also carries the danger of strengthening a Premier League rival.
