Luke Edwards has dropped a worrying claim involving Newcastle United and the chances of late transfer business.
The Lowdown: Low-budget deals
Where will Newcastle finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
However, with only a few days left until the summer window ends, they need to seriously get a move on if anyone else is planned to arrive in the North East.
The Latest: Edwards on transfer
Writing in his official Twitter page, Edwards has claimed that now ‘there is a growing possibility’ that the Tyneside club will not add any more players to the squad before the deadline hits.
This is because the Magpies are saying that ‘there isn’t money to do it’, even on loan, meaning that they may need to sell players first.
The Verdict: Worrying
It is certainly worrying to hear for the Toon Army that they may not be able to bring anyone else in before the deadline.
Joe Willock has been the only player that has been brought in on a permanent deal so far from Arsenal, and he was in the squad last season anyway, albeit on loan.
Nonetheless, serious questions will need to be asked of the board and Mike Ashley in particular that Steve Bruce is not been given more money to spend in this window.
