Mega Newcastle United Transfer Rumor Update #4

New, comments
Getty Images

It's been too long since we did one of these.  I learned this month that if you ignore your RSS Reader for 2 weeks, it will take just as long to catch up.  No matter; this is the fourth mega rumor update of the summer.

Below is an updated master list of all the transfer rumors affecting Newcastle United that have been mentioned by a major publication since February 1.  New information (since June 17) is listed in bold.  Please note that not all new information is actually news; in some cases I just missed it the first time around.

The list is intended to be comprehensive but there is little doubt that I have missed some rumors and have incomplete information on the ones I happened to catch.  Any help you can give me in the comments is more than appreciated.

It should be stated repeatedly and strongly that these are only rumors and the information contained here may or may not be accurate.  Though I do strive for accuracy, mistakes and misinformation are an unavoidable side effect of undertaking this endeavor.

Which rumored targets would you like to see the club take on?  Which targets would you like to see a profile about?

Follow the jump for a brief profile on each of the 25 strikers, 35 midfielders, 17 defenders, and 4 goalkeepers rumored to be transfer targets of Newcastle, as well as news and rumors about 19 Newcastle players.
