Blackburn star Joe Rothwell will hope to prove the doubters wrong at Rangers.

"No matter how deep is an ocean, a boat always floats at the top ." - Listed on Nasdaq stock market | Symbol: $VMAR. Join the conversation. I wonder how much he's earning now. IMO we should be treating him the same as Dembele, if Dembele got a £1million signing bonus and is on £25k per week hopefully Tierney recieved the same here. He deserves to make £millions out of the club like any other big star player and not to be taken advantage of because he is a local supporter who came from the Youth team.

Sky Sports reporter Keith Downie thinks Aston Villa defender Matt Targett would be a positive signing for Newcastle if they can get a deal done.

The Magpies are looking to bolster their defence in the current January transfer window, and could turn to Targett as they bid to move away from the relegation zone.

What's the latest news involving Targett?

Villa completed the signing of Lucas Digne last week, and the Frenchman went straight into their starting line-up for the 2-2 draw against Manchester United.

This meant that Targett was dropped to the bench, and it seems that his opportunities could be restricted between now and the end of the season if he opts to stay at Villa Park.

It is understood that Newcastle are interested in bringing the 26-year-old to Tyneside. The North-East club have reportedly reached out to Villa to enquire about the full-back's availability.

What has Downie said about Targett?

Downie is a fan of Targett, admitting the 6 foot left-back has consistently impressed him over the years. He has also claimed that Rafael Benitez was keen on bringing Targett to St James' Park on a couple of occasions during his time in the Newcastle dugout.

Speaking about Targett to GIVEMESPORT, Downie said: “Well personally, I think he’s a cracking player whenever I’ve watched him. I really like him. He does a really good job.

“Certainly when Rafa was manager here, Rafa tried to get him in a couple of times before, so I think he is highly regarded and I think he would be a good option."

The best XI of players linked with Newcastle in January…

  The best XI of players linked with Newcastle in January… A couple from PSG, a pair from Man Utd and a Germany duo feature in what could have been a decent Newcastle side. The Magpies are struggling to make the necessary signings, despite being linked with 427 players since their change of ownership.

Maddison is a cracking player but how many times does he want to do this kind of thing, apologise then do something else a while later that he has to apologise for. Surely Lingard is the best player in the league right now lol. The only chance we miss out on top 4 from here is a massive bottlejob.

Would Targett be a good addition to Newcastle's squad?

Bringing in Targett would not be the most glamorous signing that Newcastle have done in recent times considering they managed to entice Kieran Trippier away from Atletico Madrid only a couple of weeks ago, plus they are also linked with Manchester United's Jesse Lingard, with it being reported that the club will do everything to try to land the midfielder.

Then again, Targett could be exactly what Eddie Howe's men need. He is not the type of player to get fans off their seats but he is a solid professional who has racked up over 125 appearances in the top-flight.

Newcastle require defenders who can steady the ship at the back as they have been far too easy to break down at times this term. Targett rarely has an off-game, and could be trusted to tighten things up down the left flank if he decides to join the club this month.
