Newcastle remain focused on Trippier deal despite Wilson setback

Newcastle United remain focused on signing Atletico Madrid fullback Kieran Trippier.

The Telegraph says Newcastle will press ahead with plans to make Trippier a marquee signing in the January window, despite the need to bring in a striker.

The relegation-threatened side have been dealt a crushing blow following a recent calf injury picked up by forward Callum Wilson.

The former Bournemouth man is set for a spell on the sidelines, but Newcastle will not abandon their attempts to bring in Trippier in favour of recruiting a striker.

It is reported that the Magpies have had to alter their transfer plans to include the signing of a new striker but are still hoping to complete a deal to bring in England international Trippier regardless.
