Newcastle United will want to flex their new financial muscle this January window, and The Magpies could be eyeing a midfielder on the Tottenham Hotspur squad.
According to The Sun, Newcastle wants to pursue Harry Winks, who was linked to a move away from the north London-based club this summer. The Atheltic reports that there was interest from Aston Villa, Everton, and Brighton & Hove Albion, and Winks also has admirers in Spain and Italy.
However, the new brass ended up keeping the 25-year-old. Nonetheless, the media outlet suggests that a January loan could be the best option for all parties.
A temporary move would allow Winks to increase his chances of a permanent deal being struck next summer for a player whose contract expires in 2024.
Winks has only made five total appearances for Tottenham this summer, and it seems as though the midfielder isn’t going to get much playing time this season barring injury.
As a result, if Newcastle can come with a decent offer for Winks, Tottenham likely will be open to a move for the midfielder in January.
