Newcastle United transfer rumours: Manager search and January transfer window

All the latest Newcastle United transfer news, rumours and gossip as the club seek a new manager and gear up for the January transfer window after a £300m takeover from a Saudi-led consortium ended Mike Ashley’s 14-year ownership.

Steve Bruce remained in his role for the first game of the new era – a 3-2 defeat to Tottenham that marked his 1,000th game as a manager – but finally left the club after much speculation several days later.

The search for his successor continues, while talk also turns to who the Magpies could sign when the January transfer window reopens for business.
