'English spine' part of Newcastle transfer vision with James Tarkowski first in-line
Transfer-insider Dean Jones has been speaking about the vision for Newcastle's future, in terms of new recruits.
He has stated that the Magpies are planning for an 'English spine' to the team and that James Tarkowski is the first signing that the new ownership are looking for in order to bring this to pass.
â€œTarkowski definitely is one. Heâ€™s kind of in line with the vision that Iâ€™ve heard, that they want an English spine to the team," said Jones.
â€œHe is seen as somebody that can certainly help the club slowly start to turn the corner.â€
Rafa Benitez seeks Longstaff reunion
Everton have been linked with Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff, a player out of contract in 2022. The midfielder played under Everton manager, Rafael Benitez during the Spaniard's time at St James' Park and he is said to be a big fan.
Kevin Campbell has claimed that the deal could be done as Newcastle would be seeking to upgrade in midfield due to their increased budget:
â€œLongstaff has been linked with Rafa Benitez at Everton. Benitez really likes him so that one will get done I think.
â€œLook, Newcastle have big bank now. The expectations have changed overnight. Youngsters like Longstaff are probably going to be cast aside for experienced players like [Georginio] Wijnaldum," Campbell told Football Insider.
â€œIâ€™m sure there has been and will be negotiations with Longstaff. He could stay and be part of the squad but does he really want that?
â€œIf heâ€™s serious he will want to get away and play. I canâ€™t see him re-signing. Newcastle wonâ€™t want him to leave on a free though so theyâ€™ll probably try and do something in January.â€
