Newcastle come back to draw with Swansea 1-1 in EPL

Newcastle are also said to have £100,000-a-week in wages to be able to offer a new striker, but Benitez wants to offer more than that in order to lure Reina back to the Premier League, where he proved himself as one of the best shot-stoppers in England during his time at Liverpool.

The Magpies have moved clear of the relegation zone in recent weeks after Rafa Benitez's side recovered from their mid-season slump. "But for this to happen you must play with personality and stay with the ball".

Poor finishing and several fine saves by Lukasz Fabianski kept Newcastle at bay before Jordan Ayew fired the visitors ahead on the hour, heading a Mike van der Hoorn cross past Karl Darlow after the home team's keeper parried his first attempt.

Swansea have beaten Watford and lost to Tottenham in his two league games in charge, while drawing in the FA Cup away to Championship leaders Wolves.

Naturally any buyer will look to get the best deal possible so rumours of a £250m bid from PCP was mooted, this being rejected by Ashley, obviously holding out for something nearer his dream price, and since this rejection we have been left in no man's land on the takeover and as a effect, player recruitment. "I have to wait and see if we can do that".

But Carvalhal does accept the game carries extra significance with both sides in the bottom half of the table. It would be worse if we were not creating chances.


Benitez said: "If he can improve a lot during these months - I am sure he will continue improving - you never know".

Lascelles has been important for Newcastle this season - they have collected 21 points from the 16 league games in which he has featured, and just one from the six in which he has not - and Benitez will hope he can build upon that record when Swansea head for St James' Park on Saturday.

"This is not a decisive game, but we must progress and be competitive".

"But we do not want to sell anyone who will add value to the team and we can not loan players if we do not have options to replace them".

"To achieve that we must play better and better and jump to another level".
