Newcastle contact European Giants over possible loan deals

The Magpies look to the loan market in order to draft in much-needed squad depth to fend off relegation. 

Newcastle United have made enquiries about the availability of a number of players at European clubs, according to the Chronicle.

With seemingly no money to spend on new recruits, the club have touched base with contacts in Italy, Spain and Portugal to try and get some loan deals done.

The club are yet to sign any players in the January transfer window, but have spoken to Benfica and Juventus to rectify that.

Manager Rafael Benitez is believed to be interested in bringing in left-back Leonardo Spinazzola and centre-forward Moise Kean from the Serie A champions this month.

Juve have rejected all advances for the two players thus far, but United are also interested in PSG left-back Stanley N’Soki, who they tried to sign back in August.

Newcastle United sit in 17th position in the Premier League table, just two points above the relegation zone.
