Newcastle is setting targets for January when the new owners will need to recruit for their Premier League rescue mission and Wolves captain Conor Coady is the latest name to join the list.
The defender is said to be the favorite of Amanda Staveley’s senior advisor and trusted friend, Frank McParland.
McParland will take on a senior role at the club and worked with Coady in Liverpool as he rose through the ranks.

But it would take a significant sum of around £ 20 million or more to persuade the Wolves to let their star defender leave to join their rivals, according to Sun.
But money is not an issue for Newcastle’s new owners, who will reportedly be able to spend up to £ 190 million in January and stay within the rules of financial fair play.
The rebuilding of Toon will have to begin with a new manager before transfer targets can be locked in, but experts have revealed that Coady is actively in their discussions for January.
Coady received the captain’s armband from former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo and has led the Midlands team to two spots seventh and 13th since their promotion to the Premier League in 2018.
The England international has the leadership skills and experience Toon needs on his side.
Newcastle’s potential survival fight will have to have a solid foundation that the England international can easily strengthen with his experience, leadership and playing skills.
The Magpies have been linked to James Tarkowski before the January transfer window, who also played under McParland at Brentford and at Turf Moor.
The 28-year-old has entered the final year of his contract at Burnley and will be able to leave for nothing at the end of the season.
But the England international has a gentlemen’s agreement with Burnley that the club will not stand in the way of a January move.
