Journalist Provides Positive Update Regarding Newcastle United's Summer Transfer Window

United begin their Premier League campaign August 11 with a home fixture against Tottenham. "I'm really anxious", Benitez reiterated.

Newcastle and West Brom have revived talks over the proposed loan swap of Salomon Rondon and Dwight Gayle.

Benitez then said of Newcastle's fans: "They have to be concerned".

While the vast majority are sympathetic with Benitez, one man who is not is Richard Keys.

The animals can reportedly run three times faster than people, and are considered unpredictable, because they're, well, wild. These distances safeguard both visitors and the experience of sharing a landscape with thousands of freely-roaming animals.

Benitez claimed he wanted three or four more players.

He is now entering the final year of his contract on Tyneside and is refusing to sign the new deal Ashley has offered him until assurances over transfer budget and improvements to the under-23 set up, academy and training ground are met.

On the other hand, midfielder Mikel Merino has been sold for £10m.

Newcastle United have finally announced another new signing as they have snapped up Japanese global Yoshinori Muto from Bundesliga side Mainz.

Meanwhile, black boxes from the Mi-8 have already been retrieved from the crash site, but their condition is yet unclear. State oil company Rosneft said the passengers were employees of its subsidiary RN Vankor, and contract workers.

Muto is Newcastle's fifth signing of the transfer window following the arrivals of Martin Dubravka, Ki Sung-yueng and Fabian Schaer on permanent deals and the loan capture of Kenedy.

Benitez is particularly frustrated at Newcastle's failure to meet Rondón's £16.5mn release clause but the striker is almost 29 and Ashley does not like signing players over 26 because he feels they become depreciating assets. "He was right last season - you had more than enough".

Less than 24 hours after manager Rafa Benitez had said "things are not going well off the pitch and you can see a reflection of that on the pitch" in the wake of a 4-0 friendly defeat to Braga, the Magpies have acted by bringing in Muto. "But I can't say too much".
