GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS
SunSport can exclusively reveal Newcastle boss Eddie Howe is lining up Stoke hotshot Tyrese Campbell as the first signing of the Saudi era at St James’ Park.
And Howe is ready to offer £20m to get the 21-year-old to Tyneside once the transfer window opens.
Howe tracked former Manchester City youth product Campbell, son of former Everton and Arsenal striker Kevin, in his days at Bournemouth.
Campbell’s career was put on hold by a knee injury which restricted him to just 16 Championship appearances last season.
But the England under-17 and under-20 starlet is now back for the Potters, having scored two in eight league appearances this term and taking his Stoke tally to 20 in 75 games.
Meanwhile, Willy Caballero is back in the Premier League after signing a short-term deal with Southampton.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has turned to the veteran Argentine stopper following injuries to Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster.
Ex-Man City ace Caballero has been a free agent since leaving Chelsea in the summer.
But after keeping his fitness up with AFC Wimbledon, Caballero has penned a contract until January with the Saints.
Finally, Tottenham have reportedly been hit by a Covid outbreak.
Football London claims numerous players and coaches have tested positive for coronavirus.
But further PCR tests will be conducted this week ahead of games against Rennes and Brighton.
