Newcastle United: Alan Nixon on January transfer plans; including James Tarkowski -Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Alan Nixon has revealed what he has now heard about Newcastle United’s January transfer plans.

The Lowdown: Tarkowski signing?

James Tarkowski has been linked with a move to St James’ Park after the takeover was completed by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium. The Daily Telegraph‘s Luke Edwards revealed last month that the Magpies hierarchy are expected to make the Burnley defender one of their first signings, with the 29-year-old understood to be keen on a move to the northeast.

However, Nixon has now revealed the latest on Newcastle’s winter plans, including their hope to sign players in the Premier League.

The Latest: Premier League difficulties

Replying to a fan on Twitter asking if the Magpies will try and sign Tarkowski, Nixon has revealed that it is ‘going to be hard’ for them to sign players from the top flight.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will know who all these players signed from! First up, Joelinton...

The Sun journalist has also heard that the new owners at St James’ Park are ‘very busy abroad’ when it comes to potential new signings in January.

The Verdict: Annoying

It will certainly be annoying for the Toon Army if they cannot sign Tarkowski or any players from the Premier League when the winter window opens.

Players who know the league well are so valuable as they know what to expect, as opposed to someone coming in from abroad who has never experienced the intensity of the division.

However, Newcastle could still sign some absolute gems from outside the English top flight, with the likes of Ronald Araujo and Ousmane Dembele recently being linked from Barcelona.

Nonetheless, it will certainly be interesting to see what calibre of player they can attract in a relegation battle.
