Following a humiliating Cambridge defeat, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe has sent a transfer request to the board.

Newcastle United were knocked out of the FA Cup by League One side Cambridge United, prompting EDDIE HOWE to call for reinforcements…

After an embarrassing FA Cup third-round upset on home soil against Cambridge United, Newcastle manager Eddie Howe says the club needs more signings.

The League One side had little chance after the Magpies named a full-strength starting XI, but striker Joe Ironside scored the game-winning goal in the second half.

Inside St James’ Park at full-time, there was a toxic atmosphere – aside from the small pocket of traveling U’s fans in the heavens – as the Magpies endured one of their worst results ever.

As the majority of Newcastle players headed straight down the tunnel, the home supporters made their feelings about the team’s performances abundantly clear.

Kieran Trippier, the new signing, was not pleased with his teammates’ actions and attempted to have some of them return to the crowd to applaud.

His positive attitude and experience may be crucial in assisting Howe in turning around Newcastle’s fortunes.

Following the game, Newcastle manager Steve Bruce praised the impact of his new £12 million signing before urging the board to pull together and bring in more new faces as soon as possible.

“We’d love to [sign more contracts].”

“I believe you can see what Kieran has done to the team,” Howe said.

“He received a first-rate response.

At this point, new signings would give the team a boost of confidence.

“I’m crossing my fingers.”

Newcastle is reportedly looking for a striker and a new center-back.

Lille has turned down two bids for defender Sven Botman by Newcastle United.

In recent days, it is believed that talks with Sevilla over a deal for Diego Carlos have progressed.

The La Liga club reportedly turned down an initial bid of around £25 million earlier this week.

Howe also confirmed that Callum Wilson, the club’s talisman forward, will be out for eight weeks due to a calf injury suffered against Manchester United.

If Newcastle is to keep their top-flight status, they will need to find a new goal-scoring source.

Divock Origi of Liverpool has been linked with a move, but the Reds do not want to lose the Belgian until the end of the season.

Ben Brereton Diaz, the frontman for Blackburn, is also suspected.
