Exclusive: Newcastle want Branthwaite

FootballTransfers has been told that Newcastle are eyeing a January move for Everton star and Man Utd target Jarrad Branthwaite.

The Magpies are also after an 'extraordinary' Ruben Neves alternative after the Premier League's plans to ban transfers between associated clubs were revealed.

Ten Hag axed?

Man Utd's win over Luton is only a brief reprieve for under-pressure Erik ten Hag and Premier League legend Robbie Fowler is convinced that Sir Jim Ratcliffe will have no qualms about axing the Dutchman once he comes on board.

One of the names linked with the job won't excite Man Utd fans, however.

But the Man Utd exile is also among the top January targets for Saudi Pro League clubs.

The Red Devils are battling Man City for an Irish wonderkid that has been compared to Reece James.

Said wonderkid, however, would rather make a name for himself than be compared to someone else.
