Dan Ashworth, the sporting director of Newcastle United, has been strongly connected to a transfer to Manchester United.

On June 6, 2022, Ashworth began his official employment at Newcastle, and the team has since developed into a Premier League challenger for Europe. In Ashworth’s first season with the club, The Magpies qualified for the Champions League and finished fourth thanks to a combination of smart transfer activity and outstanding coaching from Eddie Howe and his staff.

The current season has been more challenging due to Newcastle’s early Champions League exit and transfer restrictions imposed by the Premier League’s sustainability and profitability guidelines.

However, because Ashworth’s future at the team is uncertain, we have examined every acquisition the team has made since the 52-year-old joined and ranked them according to the impact they have had in comparison to the amount paid to find out which transactions have been the most successful to yet.

Although Ashworth is in charge of Newcastle’s recruitment and transfer activities, he is not directly in charge of every acquisition the team makes. To assist the club with recruiting and growth, he collaborates with individuals such as academy manager Steve Harper, head coach Eddie Howe, and head of recruitment Steve Nickson.

As Ashworth previously stated, “I’m most passionate about creating pathways for young players out of all the roles I play.”

“The hiring department may be preoccupied with a right-back from abroad while one is waiting for them in the academy.

“From a Premier League perspective—and I have been guilty of this myself—you can compete for the majority of players in the world because you have so much money compared to most other leagues in the world.”

Since Ashworth’s arrival, more than half of Newcastle’s acquisitions have been young players who have not yet earned a competitive first-team debut for the squad.

joined for an undisclosed sum in January 2024 from Manchester City. Has made an impression at the young level for City, but it’s too soon to tell how he’ll fare at Newcastle, even though it might turn out to be a wise move in the long run.

joined for an Italian record £52 million, moving from AC Milan. The midfield player’s career took a turn for the worst following his spectacular debut, and he will now be sidelined until August due to a betting ban. Even if he might end up being a wise addition in the future, The Magpies’ current acquisition of him has been a regrettable one.

In 2023, Hall joined Chelsea on loan with a £28 million purchase obligation. The 19-year-old hasn’t played much this season since the team is dealing with an injury crisis. It’s an odd circumstance.

After a productive loan period, Matt Targett was acquired by Aston Villa for a sum of £15 million. The left-back has fallen behind Dan Burn in the left-back pecking order after failing to reach the heights of his loan term. A role has also been played by injuries.
