Newcastle boss Eddie Howe shares promising transfer update after meeting with Saudi chiefs

“We’re hopeful that we’re getting closer to completing a transfer for a player.

“We’ll try and give you that update as soon as we have it but, fingers crossed, we’re close to getting one over the line.

“Whether [speculation of further transfers] turns into a reality, who knows? Things change very late into the window as everyone knows.

“It can be quite unpredictable, the last couple of days, with lots of different things happening that maybe you didn’t expect so we’re open.”
