Newcastle boss Benitez targeting two defensive Championship signings

Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez is targeting two defensive signings.

The Sun says Benitez is working to bring in two Championship players.

He is poised to offer around £6m for Bristol City left-back Joe Bryan.

Toon spies think the 24-year-old defender can do well in a couple of roles and give them cover.

Benitez is also looking into a loan deal for Swansea's centre-half Federico Fernandez to add him to his Newcastle squad.

The Argentinian can leave the relegated Swans for £6m but Benitez hopes that the club will consider a year-long temporary transfer.
