After beating Liverpool last weekend, Newcastle United are currently 18th on the table. The result doesn’t really change the circumstances for them as the club still remains in the relegation zone. However, the club from St James Park isn’t adamant on making any deals in January, either. Steve McClaren says he has not yet had discussions about whoNewcastle might try to sign in January.

Asked if he has sat down with the board to discuss January plans, McClaren said: “You know what? We haven’t, absolutely not.

“Things are going on in the background and we have touched upon things, but our sole focus for the last four to six weeks has been about results, one game at a time.

“We have got four before January, so we are looking forward to those four and getting results and we’ll see where we are then.”

Newcastle, next up, face Tottenham Hotspur for an away fixture. The Magpies are in the relegation zone along with Norwich City, Bournemouth, Sunderland and Aston Villa. With just 13 points from 15 games, Newcastle has had a disappointing season until now and the future doesn’t seem bright for them as the club continues to be relegation-hit.

Newcastle United could have a couple of big decisions to make when it comes to the January transfer window, with Arsenal duo Joel Campbell and Mathieu Debuchy both up for grabs.Both names have been mentioned around the football circuit by scouts and directors with Premier League clubs starting preparations for the next transfer window.
