According to a report in the Chronicle, Newcastle United will not make bids for Jannik Vestergaard and Anwar El-Ghazi in the January transfer window.
Vestergaard and El-Ghazi have been linked with moves to St. James’ Park recently, but neither are likely to be targeted in January.
Newcastle don’t feel Vestergaard is good enough to enhance the quality of their starting line-up, while the club feel that there are better options than El-Ghazi out there.
Newcastle still want to do business in January though, with Steve McClaren eager to improve the quality of the Magpies squad.
And the Chronicle suggest that a move for West Ham United’s Andy Carroll could be on the cards, despite the club denying the reports.
Newcastle moved to say they were not interested in Carroll, but the Chronicle claim that there is still a possibility that the deal could go ahead.
Whoever Newcastle bring in during the January transfer window will be under pressure to start well, as McClaren’s side are still fighting against the drop.
