The Toon Army here in the Transfer Tavern are enjoying life back in the Premier League, but they are demanding the arrival of new talent in January to ensure their Premier League status is preserved this season.
Reports from The Sun claim Danny Ings is set for a loan move to Tyneside in January, in order to provide fresh competition for places up front, despite his insistence that Liverpool are a club he does not “want to walk away from”.
Football can be a bitterly cruel game at times, as injuries plague careers and destroy the development of highly talented individuals.
Danny Ings is a prime example of this, as he was forced out of action for almost two seasons following serious consecutive knee injuries, before he made a long-awaited return to first-team action in the Caraboa Cup against Leicester City in September.
However, with Ings desperately lacking match-fitness and facing competition for a starting berth in forward positions with Firmino, Sturridge, Salah and Mane, he would be smart to consider a loan move away from Anfield to acquire the crucial playing time he needs to return to full fitness.
The Newcastle fans on the bar here would be distraught to witness another shock relegation this season and believe Mike Ashley needs to continue investing in fresh talent, to enable Rafael Benitez’s men to establish themselves as a force in the Premier League once again.
Ashley may want to look towards some of the players on offer within the Premier League and help Danny Ings and other talented individuals reignite their Premier League careers with a switch to Tyneside.
Here are two players that would boost Newcastle’s chances of securing a mid-table finish this season.
