Newcastle United tipped to complete 'sensational' Wilfried Zaha signing after source's reveal - pundit

Newcastle United should make the “sensational” signing of Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha in January.

That is according to Spurs expert John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

On Saturday (5 November), this site revealed Newcastle have set aside a “huge sum” of money to spend in January.

The Magpies currently sit third in the Premier League after only losing one of their first 14 games of the season.

Zaha, 29, has scored six league goals this season and remains an important place for Palace, starting all 12 of 313 games.

Wenham claims the Crystal Palace man could be the perfect addition for Newcastle.

“Zaha is someone who can come in and immediately improve Newcastle,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“I do believe Newcastle will spend big in January now. They are in the top four and you have to consider them Champions League contenders.

“If you add a Zaha in there then that weakens another Premier League side and he is a player I really rate.

“Palace aren’t doing so well. Newcastle fans say they would rather have Almiron but the second half of the season is going to be so congested.

“You need options and Zaha would be sensational signing for them.”

Zaha’s current Palace deal expired at the end of the season.

Newcast;le are next in action against the Eagles in the EFL Cup on Wednesday (9 November).
