Newcastle United: Magpies keen on Jason Knight -Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United are reportedly keen on signing Jason Knight in the January transfer window.

The Lowdown: Derby woes

With Derby County now under threat of liquidation because of their financial woes, players like the 20-year-old may have to be sold in January in order to raise some important funds for the club.

Should Newcastle sign Knight?





They currently sit on just one point in the Championship table after having several points deducted, and they are under serious threat of relegation.

Still, that has not stopped Knight from performing to his best, with two goals and two assists in the league so far this season.

The Latest: Newcastle keen on Knight

As per Football League World, Newcastle are just one of a number of clubs in the Premier League who are keen on signing Knight in January, along with Everton, Wolves, Crystal Palace, Leicester City, Leeds United and Burnley.

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

He is a leading contender to leave the Rams, as administrators have refused to rule out selling players in January in order to raise funds if a buyer for the club cannot be found before then.

The Lowdown: Makes sense

A move for Knight in January would make a lot of sense, as even with the risk of the Magpies getting relegated, he would then be back in the Championship and potentially ready to sign for another club.

Described as a ‘manager’s dream’ by Rams boss Wayne Rooney back in January, the youngster can play in a variety of different positions all over the pitch, which could be very useful to Eddie Howe and his squad.

At just 20 years of age, he has already broken into the Republic of Ireland senior side, and former Irish international Andy Reid thinks that he has a ‘big future’ in the game.

It would duly seem that signing him would be a smart piece of business from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) consortium.
