Newcastle linked with Feghouli move

Newcastle linked with Feghouli move Newcastle United have established an interest in signing Sofiane Feghouli from Galatasaray, according to claims from the Turkish media. The Magpies have already been linked with a host of players ahead of the January transfer window, with manager Rafa Benitez understood to be making his plans early. It is reported by Aksam, as translated by Sport Witness, that Algerian international Feghouli has emerged as a target for Newcastle following his difficult season in the Turkish Super Lig so far. The former West Ham United star has played a sporadic role for Galatasaray this term and has started just five games in the top flight. Feghouli impressed during his time at Valencia before completing a switch to the Hammers. He struggled to influence proceedings during his short stint in English football but it seems Newcastle could provide the winger with a second chance. The 28-year-old has contributed with no goals and no assists in his 10 league appearances in 2018/19.

Newcastle United players are said to be worried about the prospect of Mike Ashley not providing the funds for Rafa Benitez to strengthen in January.

That’s according to former Newcastle player Tommy Cassidy, who told LoveSport Radio that members of the playing staff have expressed their concern to him personally as the January window approaches.

“I go over to the training ground now and again. Even the players of today know they need players in. It’s not very often in the past where players have attacked each other.”

“But some of the Newcastle players who play today have told me they need three or four players in, but they don’t think the chairman will pay the money for them. So that’s a negative which frightens me.”

Newcastle to sign Geronimo Rulli in January

Newcastle to sign Geronimo Rulli in January Newcastle are reporteldy set to sign Argentinian goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli from Real Sociedad in January. According to El Gol Digital, as cited on the Mirror, Sociedad are looking to raise funds in the new year and believe they could cash in on Rulli. It is believed that a deal could cost Rafa Benitez’s side around £6.6 million as they look to strengthen in January. Rulli has been one of the more consistent goalkeepers in La Liga over recent years and has often been linked with moves away from the club. This will not be the first time that Rulli has been snapped up by a Premier League team. Having impressed in Spain and back in his native Argentina, Rulli was signed by Manchester City in what was a bizarre move. He was loaned straight back to Sociedad and completed a permanent move to Spain in the following January window, raising questions about the reasoning behind City’s transfer.
