Report: Newcastle United scouts to head to Spain this weekend

Newcastle Utd - Gate

Newcastle United are reportedly sending scouts to Spain to look for talent they can sign in the January transfer window.

According to a report in the Chronicle, Newcastle United scouts are heading to Spain this weekend to try to find talent to purchase in the January transfer window. 

The Magpies have already realised the importance that they bring in quality in January, with the team struggling for points over the early part of the season.

And they reportedly feel that Spain could provide them with the next bargain buy, following their success in the market previously.

Newcastle snapped up Ayoze Perez from Tenerife when he was a relatively unknown quality, but his rapid progression into a first-team star at St. James' Park has convinced that the club that further talent could be spotted. 

Steve McClaren's side will need to make sure that whoever they buy in January can make an immediate impact in the starting line-up, as they need to start picking up points.

Newcastle are still looking for their first win of the season, and currently sit in 19th place in the early Premier League table. 

There has been a distinct lack of quality on display at the North East club, and only some inspired additions will spark the improvement required to push them up the standings.
