The Magpies’ Premier League Season Thus Far
Newcastle are currently third in the Premier League table, nine points behind leaders Arsenal, with an extra game played. A finish in the top four would be their best result in 20 years, having finished third in 2003 under the managerial reign of Sir Bobby Robson. Given their position in the league at the same time last season, this would be a monumental achievement.

Romano further adds that Brighton are keen on keeping Caicedo, at least until the end of the season, although a January move for the midfielder cannot be ruled out should a tempting offer be made by one of the potential suitors. The Magpies certainly have the financial strength to make a bid to sign the World Cup star. However, it remains to be seen where his future lies.
