Mark Douglas has claimed that Newcastle United are interested in signing Andros Townsend, Kyle Bartley and John Lundstram on potential free transfers.
However, writing in his latest piece for The Chronicle, the journalist has also claimed that the Magpies would need to avoid being relegated from the Premier League first of all.
Nonetheless, all three players are out of contract in the summer and have not yet signed a new deal with their respective clubs, meaning that they can be signed as free agents once their contracts expire.
Townsend, Bartley and Lundstram could be handy for Newcastle
The potential signings of Townsend, Bartley and Lundstram could be handy ones for Newcastle if they were to stay up come the end of the season.
The former has played for the Tyneside club before and so would be very familiar with his surroundings, while all three of them have plentiful experience in the Premier League under their belts and so would not need to adjust to the demands of the division.
Should Newcastle sign Townsend again?
With Townsend currently rated at £7.2m by Transfermarkt, Lundstram at £6.3m and Bartley at £2.52m, the Magpies could potentially save around £16.02m in total in transfer fees, which should also give them an added incentive to sign them all up.
