Newcastle United to raid Premier League rival for shock January move: report

Newcastle United are looking to make a surprising swoop for a player from a Premier League rival in January, as they look to address their slump in form.

Injuries have proven a big issue for Eddie Howe at Newcastle United, with more than 11 first team players missing through various reasons. Their latest 4-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday epitomised this, with a number of regular starters missing from the first XI.
