Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce is hoping for a move following a terrible start to the season as the deadline approaches.
Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce wants to make another addition before the transfer deadline on Tuesday.
According to rumours, Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce wants to secure a loan deal before the summer transfer deadline on Tuesday. Newcastle’s start to the 2021/22 season has been abysmal, with the Magpies drawing one and losing two of their first three Premier League games.
According to the Shields Gazette, he wants to bring in a new player on a temporary basis in the last hours of the transfer window.
However, prior of Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Southampton, Bruce confirmed that if another player was to join the club, one would have to leave.
He also said after the game that the Magpies’ transfer business wouldn’t go down to the wire, thereby ruling out any late moves.
His ambition to add more talent to his squad is clear, as he stated in a press conference on Friday.
He said there was no money to spend, but added that given the success of Joe Willock’s loan spell last season, Newcastle are considering the loan market.
“We are in a circumstance where we do not have a lot of money. “There isn’t any money,” Bruce said.
“Is there, however, a loan transaction similar to Joe Willock? Look at how effectively he served us.
“We’ve got a couple of people who have done exceptionally well. That’s the market we’re interested in.”
Only one signing has been made in the current window, with Willock returning to St James’ Park.
Last season, the 22-year-old flourished on loan from Arsenal, netting eight goals in 11 Premier League appearances.
He returned to Newcastle in a £25 million deal this summer, which appears to have depleted the club’s coffers.
With a huge challenge ahead of him, Bruce will feel that he needs reinforcements to help turn around his team’s poor start to the season.
Newcastle must travel to Manchester United after the international break, who have had a strong start to the season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
A journey to a sold-out Old Trafford is difficult enough, but Newcastle has the added responsibility of welcome Cristiano Ronaldo back to English football.
To avoid another unwelcome scrap in the Premier League’s basement, the Magpies will need to start picking up points as quickly as possible.
In the north east, morale is at an all-time low, and Newcastle’s transfer business appears to be in the same boat. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
