Javier Manquillo is close to leaving Newcastle United, with the right-back set to join Celta Vigo.

The 29-year-old has not made a first-team appearance this season due to a series of muscular injuries but, following a successful operation, he is in discussions to return to his native Spain and reunite with Rafa Benitez, his former manager at Newcastle.

Eddie Howe, the Newcastle head coach, is keen for reinforcements during the January window, but the club must comply with the Premier League’s profitability and sustainability regulations (PSR).

Newcastle are very close to their permitted PSR limit and, although Howe’s squad are suffering from an injury crisis, fringe players must be moved on to make room in the wage bill if they are to bring in any signings this month.

Joelinton is the latest player to be sidelined and the Brazilian is expected to miss the remainder of the season. He is due to undergo an operation on a tendon in his groin, making Newcastle’s need for a midfielder all the more acute.

Manquillo has been at Newcastle since 2017 but is fourth-choice right-back — behind Kieran Trippier, Tino Livramento, and Emil Krafth — and his contract is due to expire at the end of the season.

If the deal is concluded, this will be the second time Benitez has signed Manquillo, who has also played for Liverpool and Sunderland in England, after initially bringing his compatriot to Tyneside from Atletico Madrid in 2017.

Benitez joined Celta in the summer and the club are currently 16th in La Liga, just two points above the relegation zone.
