Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has revealed what his plans are in terms of the January transfer window.
Speaking to the media in his post-match press conference after the 0-0 draw with Liverpool in the Premier League at St. James’ Park, the former Aston Villa and Sunderland coach said:
“We’ll scour the market. We’re already doing that. We’ve got one or two things that we might progress, hopefully, and if it improves us, we’ll try and be in a position to act.”
Newcastle may be busy in the transfer market
As Bruce has suggested, the Tyneside club may well be busy in the transfer market, whether that would be bringing players in or shifting players out.
Would Saint-Maximin leave if the Newcastle takeover is not completed?
They may want to bring in some cover for Allan Saint-Maximin, who has reportedly been confirmed to be ruled out for most of the month, with both his health and his fitness a major concern going forward for the rest of the 2020/21 term.
However, the Magpies may have to think about getting rid of players first of all, whether that would be on loan for the rest of the season or on permanent deals, as it has been reported that they will have no money to spend in the window, and therefore, they will likely need to raise the funds themselves if they would like to bring any new players into the squad.
Nonetheless, Bruce has revealed that they are looking at “one or two things” in the pipeline with regards to their transfer plans, and only time will tell as to what those things are.
