Newcastle need January signings, says Benitez

Newcastle need January signings, says Benitez

"We have quite a lot (of names), but that's normal, because sometimes the clubs don't want to sell or they don't want to come".

Ghana worldwide Christian Atsu will not celebrate the festive season because Newcastle's players have cancelled their own Christmas party as they attempt to drag the club out of an alarming Premier League slump.

Benitez believes he can attract quality players to the club, despite sitting in 16th place in the table and just a point above the Premier League's relegation zone.

Mesut Ozil scored a superb volley to settle a close game in favour of Arsenal and hand the Gunners a much-needed victory in their quest to finish inside the top four. Despite the Toon's squad being fairly healthy right now, Rafa Benitez hasn't lead his team to a win since the end of October.

"We need to get those points back on the board and continue from there", Elliot added. "It was just talking about ideas", Benítez said.

"We are a team that came from the Championship and where we are now could be expected".

Benitez commended the effort his players are putting in, saying: "You can't complain about the work-rate of our players".

"We'll see if we can progress this discussion in a few days".

"They said, 'Relegated?'. I said, 'Yes, relegated!'".

With takeover talks at the club continuing, Benitez was asked how he will guide Newcastle out of their recent rut, to which he told Sky Sports: "We will keep working harder and improve little things that have to change".

"There aren't too many options with Premier League experience, with the maximum level and the right personality, so it's not easy, but you have to do your research everywhere". I had a conversation with Lee about the players we maybe want to bring in and others who can go out. They gave everything. We are where we are and have what we have. At the moment, if you don't have any players coming you can't sell anyone.
