A select look at the latest transfer news and speculation regarding the Magpies.
The Chronicle claims that Newcastle United's loan move for Everton defender Brendan Galloway is on the verge of completion, although it is hugely unlikely that a deal will be done in time to see him feature in Wednesday's clash with Reading.
Premier League side Middlesbrough are thought to have made a last-ditch bid to hijack the deal, but it appears as though Galloway prefers a move to Tyneside and will be pictured with a black-and-white shirt soon.
The Magpies have suffered from a lack of firepower as they lost their opening two games of the season to Fulham and Huddersfield Town.
With Aleksandar Mitrovic still suspended for another two games, Benitez wants another man in attack to come through the door sooner rather than later.
Bolasie joined Everton in a £25 million deal on Monday, and with Mile Jedinak looking to set to join Aston Villa on Tuesday, Palace are light in both defensive and attacking midfield.
Sissoko is capable of playing in both roles (often at the same time, such can be his box-to-box nature) and Sissoko's former manager Alan Pardew is keen on reinvesting the Bolasie money on the Frenchman.
Tiote has been a player widely linked with an exit from St. James' Park this summer, and is ultimately expected to end his spell on Tyneside.
Rennes are also said to be interested in the out-of-favour player.
It is thought that they would be keen to take the 25-year-old on loan rather than a permanent deal, but that they would be willing to pay a large percentage of his wages.
Marseille and Nantes are also reportedly interested in the signature of the man who has played just four league games for the Magpies.
