Super rich club manager keen to sign Everton ace, transfer hinges on one condition – report
Newcastle boss Eddie Howe keen on Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite as transfer condition emerges
Newcastle manager Eddie Howe is keen on securing a deal for Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite in January, according to Football Transfers.
The news outlet reported on 13 November that the transfer hinges on the condition of the structure of the deal being right.
The 21-year-old has been a regular under Sean Dyche this season but is open to leaving for St James’ Park.
Big money needed
Newcastle have deep pockets and if Branthwaite does want to leave, he won’t be allowed to go on the cheap.
He has proven himself to be a competent Premier League centre-back this season and the Toffees need to get top dollar for his sale.

Dyche has made him a better player and he’d be a valuable addition to Howe’s side but everyone knows that Newcastle have the money to pay.
They’re owned by the Saudi state and have paid exorbitant fees in recent windows to get their hands on desired transfer targets.
They’ve also got Champions League revenue and the lure of the competition to attract some of the biggest names in football.
If Branthwaite is the one Howe wants as his primary target, Everton need to ensure that they’ve got enough to sign two quality centre-backs to replace him.
