Newcastle United takeover to be confirmed this week

Fernando Torres Set For Premier League Return?

The Evening Chronicle claim Newcastle are due a "sizeable chunk" of the centralised prize pot in England's top tier, and that is expected to be enough to fund Benitez's transfer dealings in the winter window.

Fernando Torres could be set to make a return to the Premier League, according to the Mirror.

A central midfielder and a striker are likely to be high on Benitez's shortlist, but a left-back should also be one of the Spaniard's priorities with Paul Dummett's hamstring injury highlighting the need for a left-sided defender.

Newcastle manager Benitez, who brought Torres to Anfield from Atletico Madrid in summer 2007 and also coached him during his brief stint as Chelsea manager, is aware of the Spain international's desire to return to England, the Mirror reports.

Manchester United attacker Juan Mata reveals that he is looking forward to seeing Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez on Saturday afternoon.

Torres is now having a hard time at Atletico Madrid and has been limited to only two starts so far this season.

It adds that "the player's representatives have let his desire to leave on loan in January be known to both Benitez and Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino".

He is however keen to play as much as possible between now and the end of the season and may still feel that he has what it takes to compete in the Premier League.

The Everton midfielder is now seeing out the remainder of his contract with the Toffees, with the England global free to leave in the summer should no agreement be made before then.

Italian clubs are lining up for Manchester United's Matteo Darmian.
