Newcastle United could get relegated to the Championship at the end of the season.

Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley will review the club’s transfer policy at the end of the season, according to The Telegraph.

It has been reported by the British newspaper that Newcastle’s policy of signing players aged 25 and under will come under review in the summer transfer window.

“It is also understood that the club’s controversial transfer policy – which has focused too heavily on the signing of players aged 25 or under – is also going to be reviewed,” states the report in The Telegraph.

Ashley will reportedly review other aspects of the club, including the running of the Academy, and performance of managing director Lee Charnley, chief scout Graham Carr, board member Bob Moncur and Reserve team and Development manager Peter Beardsley.

It seems that the Newcastle owner is determined to look into the club’s structure, and the fans will hope that he makes changes.

Even if the Magpies do not go down to the Championship at the end of the season, there can be no denial that there needs to be structural changes.

Newcastle are one of the biggest clubs in England, but some of the players they have signed over the years have simply not been good enough.

For the Magpies to progress, they need to have the right mix of youth and experience in the team.

The Premier League outfit cannot get away with signing players under the age of 25, as they do need experience to compete with the top teams.

Moreover, Newcastle also need to add more players to their squad who have proven themselves in English football.
