Newcastle odds-on favourites to be most active Premier League side in the January transfer window

Money is flowing on Tyneside and Eddie Howe won't be afraid to splash it, while Ralf Rangnick could be busy at Old Trafford at a generous price.

It is probably no surprise that Newcastle United are odds-on to be the busiest team in the January transfer window.
The winter window will mark the first for Newcastle as the richest club in world soccer following the takeover in October, led by the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia.

Eddie Howe has a list of targets as long as his arm - even longer if you are to believe all the rumours - but which other clubs are expected to be active.

Graeme Bailey runs through the odds on who will make the most signings in the January transfer window, supplied by Betfair.

Newcastle United - 1/2

With most clubs, you ask, who do they want in January? But with Newcastle it is a case of who don't they want? Therefore, it is no great shock to see them valued 1/2 to be the most active Premier League side in the New Year.

Jesse Lingard, Kieran Trippier, James Tarkowski and Ross Barkley are among a host of names being linked with a move to Tyneside. Much will depend on where they find themselves in the table come January 1, however.

Aston Villa - 4/1

Steven Gerrard has begun life at Villa Park in hugely impressive style, but changes are expected following his appointment.

Rangers stars Nathan Patterson and Alfredo Morelos are among those rumoured to be reuniting with their former boss in January.

Watford - 5/1

Claudio Ranieri, aka The Tinker Man, loves to make changes and is believed to be on the trail of former Leicester charge Daniel Amartey. Star man Ismaila Sarr is also being linked with a move away from Vicarage Road and if he leaves, Ranieri is likely to get busy looking for a replacement.

Norwich City - 6/1

Another new manager in the shape of Dean Smith and another team mired in relegation trouble. Smith will, understandably, be looking at his former club for reinforcements. Connor Hourihane and Keinan Davis are among the players being linked with a switch to Carrow Road.

However, as with Newcastle, their league position will dictate their success in the window.

Manchester United - 10/1

The Premier League's big guns are not expected to make huge changes but the exception to that could very well be Manchester United under interim boss Ralf Rangnick.
Already linked with a dozen or so players, he is expected to make changes.
He knows RB Leipzig duo Amadou Haidara and Nordi Mukiele very well and will be looking to stamp his imprint on the club as quickly as possible.
