Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe is expected to use his “expertise” in the loan market to make crucial signings.
The Magpies are currently struggling in the Premier League and sit in 19th place after failing to win a single league game this campaign.
The arrival of new boss Howe was officially announced on Monday afternoon and he hopes to implement his tactical changes as soon as possible in order to get the club out of the relegation zone.
And the 43-year-old, who managed AFC Bournemouth for eight years between 2012 and 2020, is expected to use the January transfer window to his advantage.
Newcastle are currently without a sporting director despite their best efforts to bring in Marc Overmars from Ajax.
This means Howe will have more control over the North East club’s dealings from January, which he had already done at Bournemouth.
Howe was named Football League Manager of the Decade after advancing Bournemouth from League 2 to the Premier League, where he played a huge overall role in the growth of the football club.
The telegraph Howe Report was named because of his “comprehensive and detailed plan”, in which he touched on the exact type of players he would need to strengthen the squad in January.

And his ability to identify key Newcastle transfer targets will be an invaluable tool given the difficult circumstances he faces.
The manager will also receive £ 50million to spend in the transfer window on top of his expected loan moves.
It is understood that he will identify ‘pragmatic’ signings with good character rather than superstars, the latter having been Manchester City’s approach following their takeover in 2008.
It remains to be seen whether Howe’s vision for Newcastle will correlate with avoiding relegation and possibly leading the standings to compete with the top six.
