Could a trio of Red Devils be heading north?

While things are usually quiet during the international break, a lot seems to be going on behind the scenes at St. James’ Park.

Mike Ashley may be long gone, but his presence is still felt through the Sports Direct branding at Newcastle’s stadium. However, director Amanda Staveley is hopeful that the temporary ban on owner related sponsorship deals will be lifted at the end of the month, paving the way for brand new sponsors.

Meanwhile, Staveley spoke publicly this week, saying that while it was a risk to buy a club under threat of relegation, that they were prepared to invest in all areas of the club.

That investment seems to have stretched to a bar tab as Eddie Howe experienced his first away trip as Newcastle manager – holding a staff bonding trip at the pub.

And if rumours are to be believed, some of that investment could go towards the players they have targeted for the January transfer window, apparently discussed over beer and pizza. It seems the club has set its sights on a trio of Manchester United players who are out of favour. On the menu is Dutch midfielder Donnie Van Der Beek and England players Jesse Lingard and Dean Henderson.
