‘Doesn’t make sense’ – Newcastle United fans on Twitter not exactly delighted about rumour

The Newcastle fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to a story in The Daily Mail that has linked Baggies defender, Craig Dawson with a move to St James Park. West Brom’s relegation was confirmed last night as Southampton beat Swansea 1-0 and now a host of their senior squad could be looking at an exit from The Hawthorns.

A number of top-flight clubs will be looking to West Brom for reinforcements this season The Baggies lasted eight seasons in the Premier League and accumulated some top players, who were ultimately relegated by the incompetence of Alan Pardew. Dawson, alongside Jonny Evans, Salomon Rondon, Jay Rodriguez, Kieran Gibbs, Nacer Chadli and Matt Phillips will surely be on his way out of the club and St James Park could be the perfect destination for him.

The versatile defender can play anywhere along the back line and with the imminent departure of Chancel Mbemba, a place could become available for Dawson, who has both Premier League quality and experience in abundance. Whilst the Geordies can’t be blamed for looking at transfer targets, it’s more important that they manage to tie down Rafa Benitez on a long-term contract. The Spanish tactician’s contract expires next summer and if he isn’t given funds to help improve the squad then he could move on from his role next summer, something the Magpies would hate to see.
