Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this pub quiz... Against which team did Kieron Dyer and Lee Bowyer famously fight each other?

As per the journalist, it was the player’s preference to move to Tyneside over AVFC, but they could not afford the loan fee to make it happen.

The Verdict: Shame

It is such a shame that the Magpies missed out on signing Tuanzebe, as they will now have to rush to get another centre-back in before the window closes.

Dubbed ‘outstanding’ by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a very impressive performance in the UEFA Europa League against Granada back in April, he is clearly capable of playing at a high level, having notched up a fair amount of experience in playing in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).

At just 23 years of age, Tuanzebe certainly has potential, and being English, he would have helped fill the homegrown quota in the squad as well.

Nonetheless, the Toon must now look at other targets.
