Newcastle could have an additional £15million to do business this window going by recent developments at Championship club Fulham.
Reports claim the Cottagers want Newcastle striker Dwight Gayle desperately, and could be tempted to cash in on £12million-rated captain Tom Cairney in order to raise funds for the striker’s move.
The London club were keen on the former Crystal Palace man during the summer transfer window, and still very much believe his goals can help them seal a playoff spot as they eye a return to the topflight.
West Brom are keen on Cairney, and a move for the midfielder could boost Newcastle’s transfer kitty.
Cashing in on Gayle, who is clearly not Premier League quality, is the right thing to do, and the £15million from his sales can go a long way in helping the club’s financial shortcoming and their attempt to land them a capable hitman.
With the club not willing to release funds this window, manager Rafa Benitez has been told to sell and secure loan deals in order to bring in new players.
