Newcastle want to re-sign Eagles winger Townsend

  Newcastle want to re-sign Eagles winger Townsend Newcastle are interested in re-signing Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend this summer, according to London News Online. The 26-year old winger joined the Eagles in 2016 from the Magpies, having only signed for the Tyneside club six months prior from Tottenham, costing the London outfit his £13million release clause. Prior to that, Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez had helped Townsend settle at St James’ Park, but the Spaniard was powerless to stop the England international leaving once their relegation to the Championship was sealed. Townsend scored twice in 36 Premier League appearances last season, having also struck up a rather successful partnership with fellow Eagles winger Wilfried Zaha.

Stoke are interested in taking Liverpool striker Danny Ings on loan but are likely to face competition from Newcastle , West Ham and West Brom, Sky Sports News has been told. It is understood Liverpool have yet to decide whether they will allow the 25-year-old forward to go out on loan in January.

Stoke City FC. Swansea City AFC. Manchester United and Tottenham are both keeping a close eye on Newcastle United’s Spanish forward Ayoze Perez according to the Chronicle.

New Stoke City manager Gary Rowett is lining up a move for Newcastle United striker Dwight Gayle this summer following the club’s relegation to the Championship, according to the Mirror.

Rowett is identifying his transfer targets as he looks to take the Potters back to the Premier League at the first attempt.

Gayle performed well in the Championship a couple of seasons ago, scoring 23 goals back in the 2016/17 season as Newcastle achieved promotion to the top-flight.

The Newcastle man would be a strong addition to a Stoke squad which will be confident of rising above lesser competition and rejoin the big boys of English football.

Scottish side join race to sign Newcastle target

  Scottish side join race to sign Newcastle target Celtic have joined the race to sign Stoke City midfielder, and Newcastle target, Joe Allen this summer, according to Graeme Bailey of the Gambling Times. The report claims that Celtic are ahead of a number of Premier League clubs in their pursuit of Allen, as they aim to secure a deal for the Welshman. Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has a good relationship with Allen, who he worked with at Swansea and Liverpool earlier in his career. Bailey claims that Allen is keen to link up with Rodgers again and would be open to the idea of a move to Scotland. West Ham, Newcastle, Leicester, Wolves and Everton are the five Premier League clubs thought to also be eyeing up a move for Allen. Stoke look set to cash in on the Welsh international after they were relegated to the Championship last season. Gary Rowett will want funds to launch a promotion campaign, and Allen is one of Stoke’s most valuable players.

Stoke City manager Tony Pulis says he would still love to sign former England striker Michael Owen, but insists any deal has to be right. The stumbling block on any potential deal for Owen could be the former Liverpool and Newcastle forward 's wage demands.

Newcastle have completed the signing of forward Joselu from Stoke City for a fee of £5m. "He knows and accepts the challenge we've given him at Newcastle United and he's keen to come and fight for a position in the team."

The new Stoke manager is keen to sign players who have performed well in the division in the past and feels that Gayle would be the perfect target.

The ex-Derby boss is also keen to sign his former player Curtis Davies, who was a consistent defensive presence in the Rams’ back-line.
