Newcastle United have brought in two signings this month, in an attempt to help stave off relegation, and now they’ve been offered a Manchester United player.

Newcastle are deep in a battle to stay in the Premier League at the end of the season, with the Magpies having only won one game all season.

The loss in the FA Cup to Cambridge United further shone a light on how much Eddie Howe’s team have to do to stay away from the Championship.

Ahead of the loss to the Us, Newcastle added Kieran Trippier to their team and they’ve now signed Chris Wood to the squad, which also serves as a blow to relegation rivals Burnley.

Now the north east side have reportedly been offered the chance to take Manchester United’s struggling Donny van de Beek on loan for the rest of the season, according to the Manchester Evening News.


Van de Beek has not been able to work his way into the first team at Old Trafford under either Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or Ralf Rangnick, since joining the club in September 2020.

The 24-year-old has still astonishingly only started four Premier League games since he moved to United from Ajax, despite the team’s struggles in recent months.

His lack of game time has seen him drop out of Louis van Gaal’s thoughts for the Netherlands national team, with the World Cup taking place at the end of this year.

Van de Beek was linked with a move away from the club last summer, but it failed to materialise, and he would have hoped to get more time to prove himself.

However that hasn’t happened and, as well as being offered to Newcastle, the report claims that Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund have also been given the chance to sign him.

The offers are likely to have come from the midfielder’s agent as, despite his lack of gametime, it’s unlikely Rangnick would want to see him leave this January.

United’s interim boss has few midfield options and any return of a Covid outbreak at the club could leave them without back up if Van de Beek left.

One midfielder already away from the club is James Garner. The on loan player excelled as Nottingham Forest upset Arsenal in the FA Cup third round last weekend.
