While much of the Newcastle United news surrounding the club currently will revolve around transfers and the January transfer window, there are some developing stories involving the club hierarchy. More specifically, there are growing reports that the hierarchy are looking to potentially replace Eddie Howe, with the English boss struggling to inspire his depleted squad to a consistent run of wins.

The fanbase is still very much divided. Unless I am in an echo chamber, I understand that the majority of Newcastle fans trust Eddie Howe and would prefer to keep him through this hard time rather than risk losing it all by pursuing a mystery manager. There are some, though, who argue that the Magpies need a new boss to inspire greater achievements at the club.

Certainly, the mood could sway either way depending on our FA Cup result against Sunderland this weekend. They are our biggest rivals and having not played them since 2016, it's important for the morale of our city to beat them. Eddie Howe must overturn a recent hoodoo, though.

Newcastle United news: Joint-top La Liga boss emerges as Eddie Howe replacement

According to a new report from Marca, Girona boss Michel Sanchez has emerged as a potential replacement for Eddie Howe at Newcastle. Sanchez has demonstrated this season that his managerial prowess is capable of defying all odds as his side are second in La Liga, but level on points with Real Madrid.

Certainly, Sanchez would be a great option for the St James Park hierarchy. Although he is yet to prove himself as a manager by lifting any major trophies, it's important to stress that so is Eddie Howe. Some people won't like to hear it and I myself am a big advocate of Eddie Howe, but the club must be open to change if they are to reach the heights we have come to expect.
