A select look at the latest transfer news and speculation regarding the Magpies.

Everton's Brendan Galloway in action

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.

According to the Shields Gazette, Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez is still looking to add at least another striker and a winger to his squad before the close of the transfer window.

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.

Meanwhile, the Guardian claim that Crystal Palace are considering a surprise move for wantaway midfielder Moussa Sissoko as they prepare for life without Yannick Bolasie.

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.

A report from Turkish outlet Fanatik suggests that Galatasaray want Cheick Tiote as their midfield anchor after missing out on Liverpool star Lucas Leiva.

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.

Daryl Janmaat has also been earmarked as a player who could well leave, and Italian outlet Il Tempo claims that he is amongst AS Roma's list of right-back targets.

Emmanuel Riviere also looks set to depart, with Nice Matin reporting that Nice have opened talks with the striker.

Rennes are also said to be interested in the out-of-favour player.

Finally, French outlet L'Equipe claims that Saint-Etienne have become the latest Ligue 1 club to join the hunt for Newcastle misfit Henri Saivet.

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.
