Newcastle United need to take an "extra step" in the transfer market if they are to avoid becoming embroiled in annual relegation battles, insists Rafa Benitez.

We did an extra step?

They were brought here to do a job, but after they have to go and then you have to go for the extra step.

Owner Mike Ashley has implemented an over-arching transfer policy over the past decade which has seen the club target players under the age of 26 who have significant sell-on potential.

The Magpies manager admits that he had expected his squad to have evolved further than it has done over the past two seasons, given that a large proportion of his key players were also at St James' Park during the 2016/17 Championship-winning campaign.

You can bring in young players.

Martin Dubravka and Kenedy's arrivals in January 2018 added greater quality to his first-team squad, albeit six months later than Benitez had hoped, but Newcastle ended the summer window with a net profit in terms of business.
