Newcastle United’s Move

The newly found riches at St James’ Park means that Newcastle and Eddie Howe are looking to strengthen the squad to try and avert relegation to the Championship. They have already added Chris Wood from Burnley and Kieran Trippier to their ranks. RMC also report that the bid is around €40 million and the Northern English club are willing to quadruple the player’s wages.

Despite having the money to spend, Newcastle’s position in the Premier League is not helping them to attract the quality they are looking for. Diego Carlos of Sevilla had been linked with Eddie Howe’s side. But it now seems he will be remaining in La Liga this month. Although the club may return for him in the summer depending on what league they then find themselves in.


Guimares joined Lyon in 2020, signing a four and a half year deal when he joined from Athletico Paranaense for a fee reported to be around €20 million.
