Newcastle transfer news: Rafael Benitez delivers boost after Burnley draw | Football | Sport


Newcastle have endured a miserable transfer window.

Benitez’s funds have been restricted as Mike Ashley tried and failed to sell the club.

A deal for Feyenoord’s Nicolai Jorgensen fell flat because of a lack of funding.

And Newcastle’s hopes of offloading onto Anderlecht have collapsed.

But Benitez is still hopeful of securing a deal or two before the deadline.

Islam Slimani has passed his medical and Benitez said of the deals: “We still have time, I cannot say too much.

“We will see what happens. We are talking about different payers.

“You’ll maybe have to wait a couple of hours before you have all the information.”

Newcastle surrendered a 1-0 lead to draw with Burnley at St James’ Park tonight yet still moved up one place in the table to 13th.
