'That will end up coming back to bite Newcastle pretty hard'

On the Transfer Gossip Daily podcast, The Telegraph's Luke Edwards nominates Newcastle United as one of his transfer window losers, after the Magpies made no signings despite injury troubles.

"In the middle of the window, they lose Joelinton, their midfield enforcer - probably until the end of the season. We thought they were going to do something this month. I expected them to definitely be active, definitely bring in a body.

"They've still got 10, 11 players out injured and they couldn't sell anybody so they couldn't buy anyone.

"Of all of the teams you would expect to be able to buy their way out of trouble, they can't do it. And I think that will end up coming back to bite Newcastle pretty hard."
