Top 6 Wingers NUFC Could Sign This Summer



Newcastle united Transfer News - NUFC Transfers

European nights are on the horizon for NUFC next season and strengthening the flanks is something Eddie Howe will know he needs to do.

With current players approaching the ends of their contracts or with futures uncertain, Eddie Howe should be assessing the market to see what is out there and what is possible for reinforcements next season.

The St. James faithful are used to exciting wingers and players that can produce magic, Hatem Ben Arfa, Allan Saint Maximin for example, so we have put together a list of 6 wingers that Newcastle United could sign this summer.


  1. Christian Pulisic (Chelsea)

The tricky American winger signed for Chelsea in January 2019 from Borussia Dortmund, scoring 20 goals, and bagging 11 assists in 93 league games for the Blues. With limited appearances this season however, 19 games with only 1 goal and assist, now could be the right time to move on from Stamford Bridge and jump to St. James to rejuvenate his career. At only 24, Pulisic still has so much unlocked potential and Eddie Howe could be just the man to do that and get him to his very best. Such a versatile player best suited to the left wing but can operate on the right, or down the middle as a false 9, valued at £28 million, could this be the signing Eddie Howe should make in the summer?


  1. Isi Palazon (Rayo Vallecano)

28-year-old Spanish winger Isi Palazon is currently in his second full season with Vallecano in La Liga having signed in January 2020. This season he has really hit form, scoring 6 and grabbing 5 assists in 26 games in the league. A right winger with a great engine regularly playing the full 90 minutes in Spain for just £9 million could be a great squad signing for Newcastle with European football pending.


  1. Harvey Barnes (Leicester City)

With Leicester City currently on the verge of relegation, this coming window could see Harvey Barnes leave the club in order to retain Premier League status. The 25-year-old winger joined Leicester in 2018 and has gone on to play 138 games in the league netting 31 goals and 25 assists, with 9 goals and 1 assist coming in 26 appearances this season. A versatile winger that can play almost anywhere on the left and can do a shift through the middle, he is definitely an exciting prospect for any club and would be a great asset to Eddie Howe at Newcastle. With a market value of £28 million which would be subject to change if Leicester do face the drop, keep an eye on him as it will be intriguing to see where he is applying his trade next season.


  1. Moussa Diaby (Bayer Leverkusen)

Former PSG winger Moussa Diaby is now tearing it up in Germany with Bayer Leverkusen, having signed for them in July 2019. 30 goals and 36 assists later in 117 games, he is now getting linked with the club as a big marquee signing Eddie Howe can make for next season. Working best as a right winger but being equally as deadly on the left, this versatile winger would add so much pace and explosiveness to Newcastle United’s front three. With a market value of around £45 million, it is already being reported that Eddie Howe is preparing a £50 million bid in order to secure his signature, so as time moves on and the window approaches, don’t be shocked if we see this transfer come into effect.


  1. Mattia Zaccagni (Lazio)

Italian winger Mattia Zaccagni has impressed in his two seasons with Lazio in the Serie A, playing 25 this season in the league and bagging 9 goals and 5 assists will bring interest from elsewhere in Europe. Quick feet, direct runs, and deadly in front of goal, the 27-year-old winger is best suited on the left hand side and has played there for the majority of this season for Lazio but has played almost everywhere on the pitch over his career making him a very versatile asset for Eddie Howe, with a market value of around £22 million, this could be a very shrewd signing from NUFC.


  1. Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton & Hove Albion)

Japanese winger Kaoru Mitoma has burst onto the scene this season for Brighton after having signed for them in 2021, 7 goals and 4 assists in 21 appearances in the league will certainly have Eddie Howe and the club keeping track of him in the window. Playing on the left-hand side, he can pop up out of nowhere and create moments of excellence. Effortlessly gliding through defenders with such quick feet and a low centre of gravity, Mitoma would be a great addition to Newcastle United and with a market value of around £20 million, Brighton may be forced to sell their man if NUFC were to come knocking.

The fantastic ‘pad’ for seriously ill children and their families, opening in memory of Bradley Lowery



This is the incredible ‘pad’ where sick children can go for a well-deserved break with their families – and it is all in the name of Bradley Lowery.

‘Super Brad’s Pad’ is taking shape and could soon become a haven for people to ‘make memories’.

It will have five bedrooms, play rooms, a hot tub, enclosed garden and lots of other top-notch facilities.

It is all being made possible by the Bradley Lowery Foundation and the fantastic members of the public who are supporting it with donations.
But more help is needed to make sure fundraising targets are hit and here’s your chance to give support.
Bradley’s mum Gemma Lowery, who started the Foundation, said: “Families can spend days, weeks, months in hospital with a seriously ill child and being able to have a short getaway makes the world of difference to all of the families. 

“We want children to have the opportunities Bradley had when he wasn’t in hospital, we want parents to relax and enjoy each others company, away from the day to day life of being in hospital.”

Super Brad’s Pad will cater for up to 10 people per visit, so that ‘grandparents, aunties, uncles and cousins can also enjoy being a part of the experience’ said the Foundation.

The aim is for the home to host around 100 families per year.

Fundraising was paused, and the holiday build was put on hold, during the pandemic.

But it is back in full swing and Gemma said the build was ‘coming along nicely’.

She added: “Every donation no matter how big or small means everything to us.”

Bradley touched the hearts of people all over the world. In 2017, he won a Child of Courage trophy at the Best of Wearside Awards.

Bradley lost his fight to neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of childhood cancer, in July of 2017.

Gemma founded the Bradley Lowery Foundation and started the charity which became a beacon of hope.

Since it was founded, it has raised more than £3million for dozens of poorly children.

It has also established a dedicated support line for the families of children with cancer, donated huge sums of money to researching childhood cancers and campaigned for new drugs to be introduced in the UK.

Gemma said: “Fundraising is hard for all charities at the moment. We appreciate every penny that is donated, especially because we still have £200,000 to finish the holiday home we are building in Scarborough.”

Karl Darlow set for permanent move away from Newcastle United



After a successful loan spell to Hull City, Karl Darlow is poised for a permanent move away from St. James’.

Hull City manager Liam Rosenior has made it clear he wants to keep a hold of Newcastle United goalkeeper Karl Darlow.

Signing for the club in 2014 from Nottingham Forest, he went onto make 100 appearances for the magpies with his debut coming in 2015 under Steve McLaren. His best stint for the club was during the 2020/21 season making 25 appearances. He then saw himself fall out of favour when Martin Dubravka signed for the club and now with Nick Pope cementing the position as his own, Darlow saw himself drop down the pecking order.

Signing for Hull City on loan in January, he has since made 11 appearances keeping 5 clean sheets in the process, with three coming in the last four matches against good opposition in Millwall, Blackburn, and Watford.

“He’s been magnificent since he’s come in,” Rosenior said after Darlow’s clean sheet against Watford on Saturday. “I think he’s massively enjoying working here, I think he’s enjoying the club, he’s settled in with the players really really well.

“What I really like about Karl was as soon as he signed he had his young family come and join him and settle down in the area, and I think that’s helped him. Hopefully we’ll have discussions in the summer about his long-term future.”

Rosenior revealed earlier in the week his intention to keep Darlow at the club, and Hull are believed to be in discussions with Newcastle over making the goalkeeper’s stay at the MKM Stadium permanent – as his loan agreement is believed to have as an option.

Contracted at St. James’ until 2025, it seems as though a permanent move to Hull City would be the best thing for Darlow with his position at Newcastle United seemingly gone.

Our Premier League Team of the Season 2022/2023



With the season drawing to a close, we have put together our Premier League Team of the Season.

In what has been a season that is set to go right down to the very end, it has been yet another spectacular campaign of football with players breaking out on to the scene and some very memorable moments.

Lets have a look at who we have decided is in the starting 11 for the Team of the Season.

The starting 11 was chosen in terms of not only who we think has been the best in those positions, but also who has either exceeded expectations but also who has done exactly what was expected of them in their position.

Nick Pope, Kieran Trippier and Sven Botman mean Newcastle United make up 60% of the defence in this team, but for good reason. This season, the magpies are currently bosting the best defence in the league conceding the least amount of goals, 24 to be precise.

William Saliba and Oleksandr Zinchenko make up the remaining two spots in the defence, the Arsenal duo have had a great campaign with the gunners still sat top of the league and looking to get their first league title in nearly 20 years.

A midfield three of Casemiro, Keving De Bruyne, and Martin Odegaard, three players so vital to their clubs and all having a wonderful season, it’s hard to put anyone else in there over them.

Up top, we have a front three of Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford, and Erling Haaland as all three players have had goals, influence, and star power in their clubs to push them to the very top this season.

The substitutes include top of the league goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, which seems harsh to leave him out of the starting squad but up against Nick Pope, either could go in and it would be a good decision, but Ramsdale just makes it onto our bench.

Ben Mee has had a cracking season with Brentford seeing them looking set to enjoy a top half finish with him at the heart of defence. Luke Shaw gets on the bench after a solid season under Ten Hag at United.

Bruno Guimaraes, Gabriel Martinelli, and Harry Kane are the remaining players on the bench, all have had a fantastic season but unfortunately only make the bench for this squad.

Roberto De Zerbi is the manager of the season for us, having joined Brighton in September following Graham Potter’s departure, many thought this spelt the end of Brighton’s good fortunes in the Premier League, but not only did De Zerbi do better than expected of him, he has taken a very good Brighton and Hove Albion team and improved them navigating them to a top half finish.

Manchester City only see two players in this team, although they have had a great season, the rotation of the team sees a great team instead of individual players, which is a testament to how Pep Guardiola wants his teams to be.


Premier League 22/23 Team of the Season:

Nick Pope (GK), Kieran Trippier, William Saliba, Sven Botman, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Casemiro, Kevin De Bruyne, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford, Erling Haaland.


Aaron Ramsdale (GK), Ben Mee, Luke Shaw, Bruno Guimaraes, Alexis Mac Allister, Gabriel Martinelli, Harry Kane

Manager: Roberto De Zerbi (Brighton)
