The Mail add that Eddie Howe’s side could also raid his former club for Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke this winter, so it’s clear the club have a number of options being considered.
Newcastle fans will surely be reasonably happy with these signings for the time being, even if in the long run they’ll want to see their recent Saudi investment mean they’re in the market for even bigger names.
