However, Mundo Deportivo claims from sources at Newcastle that while Benitez has a great deal of respect for Casillas, he isn’t one of the players being considered to strengthen the squad next month.

Benitez has established a Spanish enclave at St James’ Park, with Ayoze Perez, Javier Manquillo, Mikel Merino and Jesus Gamez all on the books.
