Henderson on loan is a no brainer. I rate Dubravka but don't know how long he is out for. That's a very gettable XI and could even have some squad options in Dele and Winks to make it even more certain guys like Shelvey never play againI’ll have a go at this for January.
Dean Henderson Loan
Kieran Trippier 12m
James Tarkowski 20m
Stefan de Vrij 50m
Robin Gosens 35m
Franck Kessie 20m
Donny van der beek Loan
Wout Weghorst 30m
I think the priority for Newcastle should be goalkeeper and defence for January. They need clean sheets. Dean Henderson almost single handed made Sheffield United a mid table team. He would be my first signing.
They need commanding center backs and leadership to help Lascelles and I don’t think Inter would turn down 50m for a 29 year old de Vrij. Tarkowski is another smart signing given his contract is running down.
I think Trippier is looking to return to England and he would be perfect for Newcastle. Pair him with Gosens and they have a great wing back pairing.
To fix the midfield and ensure Jojo Shelvey doesnt play for the club again, I would throw massive wages at Kessie and AC Milan will sell in January given he has 6 months to run on his contract. Van der beek on loan or permanent would also be a good signing. I think targeting players willing to get stuck in or something to prove would be smart.
Upfront they need a prolific goal scorer to help Wilson and I think Wout Weghorst would fit well as a big and small pairing. He’s been one of the best bundesliga goalscorers over the past 3 years. If they can send Joelinton the other way, it would even be better.

Can’t imagine Raph going there, reckon he’ll want to go to SpainCan see them going after the better types from outside the top 6 clubs. Most of them will be £50m+ as an absolute minumum. Some of them like Raphinha, Rice, Phillips more towards Grealish territory.
Spring to mind.
Maybe even a Toney, Bamford or Watkins.
Think they will have a crack at a few like Tielemans, Greenwood, Martial, Sterling, Son, Henderson, Saka from the top 6.
Someone like Damsgaard - Definately.
How likely would it be that he just retires? How often has a person had a situation like this and then comes back?Confirmed that Eriksen can't play in Serie A and might leave Inter on a free. It's not clear whether he could play Premier League again.
Hopefully Sergio Aguero isn't in this situation.How likely would it be that he just retires? How often has a person had a situation like this and then comes back?
