Newcastle United knocked out EFL Cup by Nottingham Forest

Newcastle United knocked out EFL Cup by Nottingham Forest

Benitez has made a "direct request" to the Newcastle United board to bring Jovetic to St James Park, and there's set to be a new effort today.

Rafa Benitez is determined to land the player and is to make a fresh approach to try and sign the Montenegro global.

The Magpies have started life back in the Premier League in an unconvincing fashion, with the club suffering defeats to Tottenham Hotspur and Huddersfield Town last weekend and have not been able to score a goal.

However speaking ahead of United's Carabao Cup encounter against Nottingham Forest, Benitez denied that there have been any talks and when he was asked about the rumours, he said, "I know nothing".

Newcastle reached the quarter-finals of the competition last season, and their fans will be hoping that they can match, if not better, that run in this year's tournament. "Hopefully we can change that tomorrow".

"Benitez has historically set up his teams to be defensively very structured, he doesn't play the most attacking brand of football", continued Barton.

Newcastle, of course, is a club which has too often found itself in the headlines for the wrong reasons, and Ashley's admission that they can not afford to give Benitez the money he would like for transfers has led to predictions that it will all eventually end in tears once again. "I have said that this team will improve and I am convinced that we will do it".

"If you are going to go through in the cups, you have to use your squad. It has proved that we have to improve in some areas".

"He is struggling and you could see tonight that at times they were struggling".

Newcastle are still in the market for new additions before the transfer window closes but Benitez has warned he does not expect "an easy window" for the club as transfer deadline day approaches.
