The Latest: Jackson transfer update
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones has shared that, although Newcastle have ‘looked’ at Jackson, he is ‘not top of the list’ at St James’ Park.
The journalist stated: “Newcastle have looked at him, but he’s not top of the list as I understand it. He’s just a player that they’ve kind of marked down to keep an eye on for the coming months.”

Hailed as a ‘quality‘ player by former Premier League striker Kevin Campbell, and one with ‘bags of potential‘ by journalist Ashley Preece, the youngster has only missed one game for Villarreal all season, scoring three goals and supplying two assists across all competitions (Transfermarkt).
