Rafael Benitez is eyeing some additions in the January transfer window in a bid to continue the rescue work at Newcastle United.
The Magpies breathed a sigh of relief after registering two back to back wins which helped them climb to 14th place in the Premier League table. Owner Mike Ashley refused to shell much in the summer but he is likely to sanction a big budget given the team’s overturn in the form in recent weeks.
Benitez’s future seemed to be uncertain but the former Liverpool manager is determined to get the club back on track. His foremost priorities will be making Salomon Rondon’s loan switch permanent.
The Venezuelan international arrived from West Bromwich Albion on a season long loan and his impressive display on the attacking third seems to have ended Benitez’s long search of a proper centre forward.
Benitez said, “We cannot stop winning because we have to do a good January window.
“I would like to go into January 1 with a lot of wins.
“Always January is quite difficult. It’s not a question of how much – it’s a question of finding the right players and, if you see a player you like, that’s when you talk about what you can do.
“It’s quite a difficult window. I always say the same because the top-class players are normally playing in the Champions League in the top teams and it’s very difficult for them to change.”
