The Latest: Edwards on transfers
Writing on his official Twitter page, The Daily Telegraph journalist Edwards has claimed that new players will be coming to the North East, despite progress remaining “slow”:
“Assured new players will definitely be arriving.”
The Verdict: Promising
It is certainly promising to hear that the Tyneside club will be bringing in some new faces before the window shuts.
However, with only a couple of weeks to go until the new 2021/22 Premier League season starts, they really need to get a move on, as every other team in and around them are strengthening.
Steve Bruce’s side will likely explore the possibility of signing Joe Willock from Arsenal again, whether that be on another loan deal or a permanent move, but nothing is a guarantee in the transfer market, and so the Magpies should really be acting now rather than later.
Nonetheless, the Toon Army will be praying Edwards is right about seeing some fresh faces, whether fan favourite Willock is one of them or not.
