Transfer news: Newcastle United - January transfer targets
We take a look at the players who have been linked with a move to St James' Park this month
Tuesday 14 January 2014
This transfer window could prove crucial for Newcastle who have had a fluctuating season so far, mixing good results with bad.
With the right signings Alan Pardew could perhaps challenge for a European place or at the very least secure a decent finish.
However with a squad slightly threadbare in places, he also could do with reinforcements just to shore things up.
Newcastle have looked weakest up front with Papiss Cisse horribly out of form and the side a little too reliant on loanee Loic Remy.
The injury problems of captain Fabricio Coloccini also make the defence an area perhaps in need of strengthening.
You can see some of the players who have been linked in the press and online with a switch to St James' Park in the gallery below...
