Newcastle United: Luke Edwards confirms Magpies hoping to sell 4 players to possibly fund 2 new signings - Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Luke Edwards has confirmed that Newcastle United are hoping to receive offers for four players as Steve Bruce looks to bring in a new central defender and striker ideally before the summer transfer window shuts.

According to tweets from the Daily Telegraph journalist, Bruce needs to move players on before he can realistically bring in any new additions.

He is still hoping to receive offers for Christian Atsu, Henri Saivet, Rolando Aarons and possibly DeAndre Yedlin as well in order to potentially fund deals for a new centre-back and centre-forward before the market closes.

Indeed, Saivet has only managed to play in a total of eight matches at St. James’ Park over all competitions in two separate terms in the North East, with Aarons managing just a mere 27 games in all competitions across four separate seasons.

On the other hand, Atsu has been a player who has had a little more attention at the Tyneside club, having made a total of 121 appearances in all competitions over five consecutive campaigns, in where he has managed to score eight goals and make a further 10 assists, as per Transfermarkt.

However, with the likes of Ryan Fraser adding to Allan Saint-Maximin, Matt Ritchie and Miguel Almiron in the attacking midfield options available to Bruce, perhaps it is time for the 28-year old to move on from the Toon.

Yedlin may reportedly be leaving the Magpies on a free transfer to a team from the MLS, and so the potential money saved from his wages may also contribute to a bigger transfer kitty.

Let us start with the 10th most expensive, how much was Jonjo Shelvey?

If NUFC can shift these players on for a reasonable price, then Bruce may well be able to get a new centre-half and striker in before the window closes.

Geordies, would you keep any of these players? Comment below!
