Newcastle United organized a press conference for Friday afternoon with Eddie Howe being the main feature and addressing multiple topics. Those ranged from the current estate of affairs regarding the transfer market, the availability of players and their recovery from injuries, and Sunday’s game against Manchester City.

As a brief recap, Howe was quoted saying (among other things) that Newcastle “are going to make a very late decision [on Matt Targett]”, “are still working hard behind the scenes to try and make something happen”, and that the next game on Sunday “is the ultimate test [and] the real barometer of our quality.”
