After a bad result against Nottingham Forest, Newcastle transfer news about signing players has become more evident. Forest dominated Newcastle’s midfield. The Magpies desperately need a solid defensive midfielder who can provide support for Newcastle’s backline. Bruno Guimaraes seems to be struggling as well after the ban of Sandro Tonali. Most of the time, he is left alone to deal with the opposition's attack. This is not giving Bruno the freedom he needs going forward. That is why Eddie Howe is getting desperate to sign a new defensive midfielder who would help Bruno out in the midfield and allow him to move forward. Apart from that, Eddie Howe has also identified the need for a new goalkeeper and a forward. However, the Financial Fair Play rules will not allow Newcastle to make big signings. But, a loan deal for Manchester City’s outcast Kalvin Phillips is looking very likely now.

Newcastle transfer news: Kalvin Phillips interest grows for Eddie Howe

According to Luke Edwards from The Telegraph, Newcastle United and Eddie Howe are looking to re-ignite their interest in signing Manchester City’s defensive midfielder Kalvin Phillips. Pep Guardiola already raised questions about the future of the midfielder and the English player is now looking for a move as the January transfer window opens up. Thus, fans can expect more Newcastle transfer news and updates regarding Kalvin Phillips who is lacking game time at the Etihad Stadium.

Yes, the Financial Fair Play rules will prevent the Magpies from making a permanent move for the player. However, a loan move is still looking likely because the player wants to leave and City wants him to find another club where he can get game time. With Newcastle looking like the only option for the English midfielder, Eddie Howe will feel more confident about signing the player he wanted for a long time.
