Newcastle still in need of recruits
PREMIER LEAGUE: Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez will continue his search for new players despite seeing his team finally open their league account with a 3-0 victory over West Ham at St James’ Park.
A first goal from summer signing Joselu and two more from Ciaran Clark and Aleksandar Mitrovic secured a win to dispel some of the disquiet on Tyneside.
However, Benitez remains adamant that further additions to his squad are imperative if he is to keep the club in the top flight.
Asked if he still needed to do business ahead of Thursday’s transfer deadline, the Spaniard said: “Yes, we have to. Nothing changed in the first two games and nothing has changed now.
“We have a clear idea of what we want to do and will try to do it. I don’t know if we can do everything. We will try to do the main things if we can.”
