The latest Newcastle United transfer news, as Bayern Munich considers a bid for Kieran Trippier before the January transfer deadline.

Newcastle United will not have to rush to find a successor for Kieran Trippier if he leaves the club in the coming weeks, owing to a pre-existing plan.

The full-back has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich, with ChronicleLive reporting that the Bundesliga giants are considering a move for him before the end of the window. Thomas Tuchel has indicated that he is looking for a new right-back in January.

While Eddie Howe would prefer to keep Trippier this window, the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability guidelines state that all teams may be compelled to sell players if the correct price is given. If the transaction is completed late in the window, this frequently results in a rush to purchase a replacement.

That will not be the case at Newcastle, as they will follow Brighton and Hove Albion’s example. If the Magpies sell Trippier during this window, Tino Livramento is ready to take his position.

The 21-year-old moved to St James’ Park from Southampton last summer. Brighton has gained a reputation and accolades for signing ready-made replacements for players during transfer windows.

Over the last two seasons, the Seagulls have sold players like as Marc Cucurella, Yves Bissouma, Leandro Trossard, Alexis MacAllister, and Moises Caicedo, but this has not slowed their improvement on the pitch under manager Roberto De Zerbi.

Kaoru Mitoma is one of those who has stepped up, with his game time increasing following Trossard’s move to Arsenal. The Japanese international signed 18 months before Trossard’s sale and spent the 2021/22 season on loan with Belgian club Union Saint-Gilloise.

Dan Ashworth, the sporting director, could have had an influence on the planning. After three years at Brighton, he joined Newcastle in a similar role in May 2022.

The Premier League’s spending limitations may force clubs to be more strategic during the transfer window. Forward planning could be critical in this regard, and Newcastle, like Brighton in the past, appears to be getting it right.
