Newcastle United will look to strengthen their squad during the January transfer window in order to further boost their survival chances after picking up just 16 points in their opening 17 Premier League games of 2018-19.

This should be a huge boost, and with the Slovakian international a success at Toons Park, his agent will likely more than keen to allow the club have the midfielder.
Rafa Benitez’s side could do with more depth in the middle of the park, and Travnik, who’s also capable of playing as a holding midfielder, looks capable of being a great signing if his recent performances are anything to go by.
