Newcastle looking for additions

Under the leadership of Eddie Howe, Newcastle are looking to strengthen their side this January in order to have a better second half to the season, and avoid relegation to the Championship come May.

They have made a good start, recruiting Kieran Trippier and, most recently, adding Chris Wood from relegation rivals Burnley.

But they still need more across the pitch, and may well have now turned their attentions to midfield, where they also look light.

Haidara on Newcastle’s Radar?

As per the Daily Mail, the Magpies could be ready to make Manchester United target Amadou Haidara the highest-paid player in the club’s history, offering the RB Leipzig midfielder 160,000 pounds-a-week to swap Leipzig for Tyneside.

Currently at the Africa Cup of Nations, Haidara departing may be something that happens later in the window, but with a reported release clause of 33 million pounds come the summer, should the player prove willing to make the move, it would be a very easy transfer to complete.

However, the Magpies are keen to pay over the odds, as per the report, to get their man in January.

Would he be the right addition?
