Newcastle boss Steve Bruce is trying to make the most of his limited transfer budget by acquiring a pair of Premier League stars from Chelsea and Leicester.
Newcastle They have endured a difficult campaign so far, but last time they had a spirited performance to secure a point against Liverpool.
Avoiding relegation will be the ultimate goal at the end of the season, and a sure way to help that goal is through the transfer market.
Again, funds are expected to be tight for Bruce, which means the loan market will be a likely avenue to explore.
