GOOD PEOPLE IN THE MORNING
SunSport can exclusively reveal Newcastle manager Eddie Howe is ranking Stoke hotshot Tyrese Campbell as the first signing of the Saudi era at St James’ Park.
And Howe is ready to offer £20m to bring the 21-year-old to Tyneside as soon as the transfer window opens.
Howe watched former Manchester City youth product Campbell, son of former Everton and Arsenal striker Kevin, during his days at Bournemouth.
Campbell’s career was stalled by a knee injury that left him with just 16 Championship appearances last season.
But the England under-17 and under-20 star is now back with the Potters, having scored two of eight league appearances and taking his Stoke count to 20 in 75 games.
Meanwhile, Willy Caballero has returned to the Premier League after signing a short-term contract with Southampton.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has switched to the Argentina veteran following injuries to Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster.
Former Man City player Caballero has been a free agent since leaving Chelsea in the summer.
But after keeping fit for AFC Wimbledon, Caballero has penned a contract until January with The Saints.
Finally, Tottenham is said to have been affected by the Covid outbreak.
Football London claims many players and coaches have tested positive for coronavirus.
But further PCR tests will be conducted this week ahead of games against Rennes and Brighton.
