Eddie Howe Wants To Bring Three English Defenders To Newcastle In The Transfer Window

Newcastle United are reportedly keen on bringing three English defenders to the club in the coming months, including Atletico Madrid full-back Kieran Trippier.

Eddie Howe is keen on bringing players with Premier League experience to the club as they fight for survival.

The Magpies have been linked with numerous big-name players in recent months following the Saudi takeover, including the likes of Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard, who is believed to be the club's number one target.

But three names mentioned in a report by The Sun are Burnley pair Ben Mee and James Tarkowski and England international Kieran Tripper, who would cost around £25 million.

Tripper would also demand big wages if he was to move, according to the report.

In addition to the above three names, Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, who has scored 20 goals in 24 games for club and country so far this season, is also on Newcastle's radar.

Hoffenheim's midfield dynamo Florian Grillitsch is also believed to be a transfer target as Howe looks to secure Premier League safety.

Newcastle managed to secure their first win of the season on Saturday afternoon against Burnley thanks to a 40th-minute strike from Callum Wilson.

They also managed to keep their first clean sheet of the season; a stat manager Eddie Howe was delighted with.

"It was a massive game for us today," he told the BBC. "I was well aware of the importance of the fixture and I thought the lads really responded after the first 20 minutes.

"I thought we were very good today especially from a defensive perspective."

Who do you think Newcastle should bring in to strengthen the current squad? Would Mee, Tarkowski and Trippier be good additions?
