Of all things Newcastle United fans were expecting to see on Thursday, we think it’s fair to say Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka being linked with the club was not one of those. The Times have reported that Steve Bruce is a big admirer of the Swiss international, and will offer him a lifeline in January at St James’ Park, with a transfer request expected at the Emirates Stadium. This is definitely not the answer, with his wages suggested to sit at £130,000-a-week, which is almost double the amount of their highest earner Miguel Almiron.
