Junior and Jordan catching the eye

Our priority in the January sales might be a defender, but might I venture that the advertised availability of Blackburn's Junior Hoilett for a cut-price fee and a staggering five-goal FA Cup haul for Huddersfield's Jordan Rhodes will not have gone unnoticed at St James' Park?

I've already written about Rhodes, while Hoilett is an exciting young talent who's already starting to make good on his potential in the top flight, achieving the difficult feat of starring in a troubled, struggling side. With Spidermag and Obertan Kenobi hardworking but regularly flattering to deceive, and Sylvain Marveaux still out injured, we could certainly do worse that Hoilett when it comes to finding someone with pace and trickery who can attack from both flanks.
