Newcastle January transfer window 2022: Signing, loaning and selling players
Newcastle United made their first move in the January transfer window and it was a clear statement of intent that the Warblers would work to avoid relegation, finishing 19th with just one win. and 11 points total.
The Eddie Howe-managed club have one of the worst defenses in the league, with 42 goals conceded in just 19 games and an all-time worst total of 80 goals conceded in calendar 2021. . But he helped address those shortfalls by adding England international Kieran Trippier in a $16.2 million move from Atletico Madrid. Trippier can also play at full-back and will bring quality, tenacity and leadership to the club.
But Newcastle will not only focus on the defense holding the ball. They have only scored 19 goals, worse than all but the other two teams in the relegation zone at the beginning of 2022. So the support of the attack will certainly come before January.
The Magpies is under new ownership, recently acquired by the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, chaired by the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohamed bin Salman. Despite the backlash amid what is essentially a foreign government takeover, the takeover has taken place and significant funds are expected to be available for reinforcements this winter.

Newcastle transfer rumors & news
Here is the latest on the Newcastle United transfer front based on reports in Europe:
Will Newcastle sign a new striker?
To add to Newcastle’s already significant list of woes, top scorer Callum Wilson was injured in the festival final, and suddenly the already thin attack looked even more bland. Allan Saint-Maximin also struggled with minor injuries, the target of opponents who regularly hunt for the talented winger.
This has caused the Magpies to search for offensive reinforcements, and they are setting their sights high. One name emerged as a young Real Madrid player Luka Jovic, whom Magpies was rumored to be interested in last summer. Nothing substantial has arisen to suggest that a deal is imminent, but Jovic’s name is being thrown around. Newcastle’s blogs as a reasonable possibility.
THAN: As January windows open and close across Europe
Based on Brazilian publication Globo, Flamengo is expecting to receive offers for strikers Gabigol, and apparently received a “mocking” offer from West Ham that was not even responded to properly. The report names Newcastle as one of the clubs Flamengo expects to hear from, although the club will be hoping the Warblers have a better offer than a $7 million loan with an option to buy. supposedly received from The Hammers.
Newcastle has been linked to Moussa Dembele (below) of Lyon back in December, and Daily mail claims that he continues to be an option. After leaving Fulham, Dembele enjoyed spells with Celtic and Lyon before spending the second half of last season on loan at Atletico Madrid. The Spanish side decided not to activate the call option, and with his contract expiring in the summer of 2023, Lyon is likely to sell this winter.
Magipes definitely needs a guardian
While Trippier would be a welcome addition, the Magpies have had enough on target this season to show that one player alone won’t be enough to turn things around. Jamal Lascelles has fallen short this season and his partnership with Fabian Schar has fallen apart.
The hottest rumors centered around the Barcelona defender’s loan deal Samuel Umtiti, whom the Spanish club are trying to move, is motivated by his desire to cut his contract and salary. However, the player is said to have turned down five separate potential transfer deals, according to Daily mail and many reports. Umtiti was once a key player in Barcelona’s defence, but he has since faded, appearing only once in La Liga this season and his contract expires in the summer of 2023. Other clubs of interest are said to be Turkish team Fenerbahce and an unnamed French club.
Newcastle could have a chance to sign the PSG defender Abdou Diallo, according to a report by journalist Liam Kennedy. The deal will be a complicated one as Diallo is on duty with Senegal in the Africa Cup of Nations, and if the country moves deep into the tournament, it could disrupt negotiations through time. transfer term. The 25-year-old signed for PSG in the summer of 2019 from Borussia Dortmund but has been unable to get a meaningful starting position.
Sven Botman Lille’s side have been rumored to be interested in a move to Newcastle, and the young Dutch international will also be an asset to the future, but according to The Telegraph’s Luke Edwards, Lille is unlikely to sell the player under contract until the summer of 2025. The Magpies are also said to be keen to win. James Tarkowski from fellow relegation fighters Burnley, but Edwards also reported that’s a distant possibility given Burnley’s struggle.
Newcastle are also said to have made an offer to buy Everton Lucas Digne (below) according to Sky Sportsand while the bid was reported to be $30 million plus Sean Longstaff Being able to entice and convince players to join when teams like Chelsea can come calling will be a completely different task.
Among all the possibilities of incoming defenders, one player who could leave the club is the aforementioned one Fabian Schar. The 30-year-old Swiss has made 83 appearances for Newcastle since joining Spanish club Deportivo La Coruna in 2018, but according to journalist Nicolo Schira, Schar is hoping to arrange a future away from this Tyneside Jury, with his contract expiring in the summer.
Other potential reinforcements of Newcastle United
Newcastle have been linked with countless other players this transfer window, although very few of them make sense.
One name that raises eyebrows is Manchester United Donny van de Beek, and like Luke Edwards reports, there is reason to believe that could happen.
Despite the outcry from fans and the press, Van de Beek was barely given a chance at Old Trafford despite a series of squad changes, tactical adjustments and player changes since since he signed in the summer of 2020.
With Newcastle looking for players to fill the pitch, he could be a low-risk option if loaned out, and Manchester United could be persuaded to let Van de Beek leave with a bloated squad Ralf Rangnick has it on hand. It’s hard to imagine United abandoning Van de Beek entirely with a permanent sale, but a loan could make sense for all involved.
