​Benitez nightmare continues with Newcastle to miss out on Benfica star Samaris

Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez could lose out on Benfica star Andreas Samaris due to budget constraints.

The defensive midfielder is a transfer for Benitez, but according to the Sun, Newcastle can't afford to spend more money in the market without selling some of their players.

The Magpies have already spent more than £31m in the market this summer.

Samaris, who has two years left on his deal with Benfica, is valued at £17.5m
