Telegraph journalist Luke Edwards said Newcastle is urgently looking for a new midfielder after Sandro Tonali’s illegal betting scandal.
Luke Edwards reports that Al-Hilal’s Ruben Neves is one of Newcastle’s suitors. He left Wolves to join the Saudi Pro League side last summer and a deal was possible as both clubs are owned by PIF (Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund).
Edwards also revealed that Kalvin Phillips had “strong interest” during the summer, but he turned down Newcastle. A loan deal could be submitted to Man City in January.
Telegraph commented A loan deal will be Newcastle’s priority in January.
In Tonali’s case, in case of conviction, the highest penalty he faces is a 3-year ban. If his sentence is reduced, the former AC Milan midfielder may have to sit out for 1 year. This is a pity because Tonali has played very well since the beginning of the season.
