Rafael Benitez’ Newcastle United have taken the Championship by storm this season, excluding poor form in the opening two weeks of the campaign, but the Spaniard’s side are odds-on to achieve an immediate promotion back to the Premier League.
Benitez has revitalised the Newcastle squad and has to be praised for his transfer activity with the club, although his work is not yet done and he needs to be busy once again in January.
Whilst big-players and star signings can provide the difference between a promotion winning campaign and falling short of expectations, getting rid of deadwood is equally important as unsettled players could easily disrupt the flow of the team.
Players in the squad that aren’t up to scratch will also take up wage funds and a spot in the team, which means Benitez has to axe the right men swiftly- and we believe these two players simply have to go when the mid-season window opens in the New Year.
