So if someone is coming and approaching us about them, then we have to consider that.

"Whatever happens, we will still be missing something in certain positions and that is why we are trying to bring players in". Players who are not playing and everybody knows about, maybe they would be available.

"But if somebody wants to buy, we'll see if the price is good for us and for the player". But we do not want to sell anyone who will add value to the team and we can not loan out players if we do not have options to replace them'.

"Swansea also need new players but I don't know who they will be able to sign that could make a difference and, from the sounds of it, neither does their new manager Carlos Carvalhal".

Benitez spoke to Ashley - who returned from a holiday in the US this week - last month.

He remains hopeful of making two or three additions before the window closes at the end of the month, although he has had to downgrade his ambitions markedly since the turn of the year.

Newcastle have been in discussions with Chelsea about a loan deal for winger Kenedy.

Bush's first exam as president, his doctor said he enjoyed the occasional cigar, drank diet soda and ran 12 miles a week. "While he can say what he wants, thankfully the president cannot change our laws, much less amend the Constitution".

Keeper Rob Elliot is back in the squad to face Swansea on Saturday having recovered from a hamstring injury - though Benitez would not confirm whether he would play against the Swans. "No, it will be a massive game for them and a massive game for us".

"I thought we could sign a player this week, but we couldn't do it, so it is more or less the same".

"We are working (on transfers) but there is no news at the moment". My belief is that we will do what we have to do.

"We have to work with the names that we have and we have to try and do our best in the conditions we are working in". But if they talk about loans we are not interested because we need them.

Newcastle failed to sign the likes of Tammy Abraham and Andre Gray in the summer transfer window, but at least the pair did move on to fellow Premier League clubs.

Ashley, however, would rather Benitez sold before he bought.
