Christian Atsu believes Newcastle United’s transfer deals during the January window will improve the club’s survival chances.

The Magpies have brought in Antonio Barreca and Miguel Almiron to boost their chances.

Almiron has clearly caught the eye on the training pitches of La Finca Golf & Spa resort in the south of Spain.

"Our new signings you can tell already are very good players," he said of Almiron and Italian full-back Antonio Barreca.

"They are positive additions to our squad, and they will give us a lot of things that we don't have; for example, pace and creativity.

"Almiron is very quick and he knows how to create problems for the opposition.

"Also the left-wing-back, Barreca, he is a very good player who gives us an option out wide. We are just trying to help them achieve their goals here and to make as big an impact as possible."

Newcastle United will face relegation-threatened Huddersfield Town this weekend.
