Shay Given names six players Newcastle are expected to sign – including four England internationals

Shay Given has named six players Newcastle would like to sign this summer in the Premier League 2021-22 show – including Leeds star Kalvin Phillips. He also suggested a return for Ivan Toney from Brentford.

Newcastle produced an impressive second half of the campaign under Eddie Howe. The first club to fail to find a win in their opening 14 Premier League games, they nonetheless managed to finish in a high tenth place.

In January, Howe brought in Chris Wood, Dan Burn, Matty Targett, Kieran Trippier and Bruno Guimaraes and all five worked – even if Wood didn’t score the number of goals he would have liked and Trippier was injured.

Speaking to the 2021-22 Premier League show, Newcastle legend Given says he expects his old side to make four or five signings. He suggested Dean Henderson, James Tarkowski, Phillips, Christian Eriksen and Ivan Toney.

“I’m just looking through the league. Dean Henderson; a strong possibility that he could come and challenge Dubravka. Tarkowski at Burnley, he’s free. Kalvin Phillips in midfield, I know Leeds fans don’t want to let him go.

“Eriksen at large. Let’s look at a striker, maybe Ivan Toney or Tammy Abraham, who has had a great season in Italy. There will be four or five signings, but they have to be the right signings.” given said.

So which ones could Newcastle sign? It’s ambitious given that Henderson, Tarkowski, Phillips and Abraham are England internationals. As Given says, there’s a good chance Newcastle could sign Henderson this summer.

They are reportedly on the verge of getting him. Tarkowski is a target and West Ham are cooling off his interest as they expect Newcastle to get him. £60m target Phillips is another on Newcastle’s radar.

Eriksen has a decision to make – with his contract expiring. Another to be linked but could return to Spurs. Toney may be tempted to return, Keith Downie says he has work to do after leaving the toon in 2018.

Perhaps the only one who cannot be linked is Abraham, who seems content with Roma in Italy. There’s a chance Newcastle get the previous five, but Abraham could just be out of their reach at the moment.
