Newcastle have been recommended a signing in the January transfer window that could become an icon under Eddie Howe. It comes after Amanda Staveley promised the new Toon boss funds.

Frank McAvennie has told Howe to spend Newcastle’s new cash on Tottenham outcast Dele Alli in the January transfer window.

The former West Ham star believes he could revive his career under the Toon boss, who was brought in to replace Steve Bruce last month.

Since Mauricio Pochettino’s dismissal as Spurs manager, Alli has been ultimately ostracised in north London.

Jose Mourinho did not take a shine to him and that passed on to Nuno Espirito Santo while the signs are there under Antonio Conte too.

Alli has yet to play a single minute of football under the Italian and a move away has been touted.

And Newcastle could be the ideal location for the Englishman, who has not appeared for his country since June 2019.

Spurs could sell Alli in order to fund further signings with Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic in their sights.

While McAvennie believes the former MK Dons star should make the move to St James Park.

“I think Dele Alli would be the ideal signing for Newcastle,” McAvennie told Football Insider.

“If he went there, there would be nowhere to hide. He would play every game and maybe that pressure would help him find his form.

“He’s not played a minute under Conte so maybe he’s not convinced by him yet.

“Newcastle have this money to spend. Alli might be on his way out.

“If they want Premier League quality players, look no further. He’s brilliant on his day.

“Eddie Howe might have issues with his attitude. But if you can solve those issues, you have one hell of a player on your hands.

“I can see that happening if Alli doesn’t work his way back in at Spurs, which is entirely possible.”
