January transfer window news: Wood, Fellaini linked with Newcastle, Roma making moves

We all knew that Newcastle United would be busy this transfer window and Tuesday’s reports and rumors show that it was no joke.

How about taking away the only true target forward that your relegation rival had by triggering his release clause? That seems to be happening with Burnley forward Chris Wood having a medical before joining Newcastle. Then there’s a report of a potential Premier League return for Marouane Fellaini. 

Among the other tidbits of the day, Barcelona is trying for a blast from the past and Jose Mourinho is making moves at AS Roma.
