Flying Championship midfielder can be surprise summer signing for Newcastle United

Newcastle United have had an up and down season this term and are still facing a small fight to maintain their top flight status, despite a massive win over Southampton this weekend.

The Magpies will be hoping for a better summer this time around as manager Rafa Benitez looks to add some quality signings to the ranks ahead of next term, and the Toon Army will be desperate to keep the Spaniard at the helm going into a new campaign.

Here in the Tavern, our landlord thinks the Newcastle fans deserve a better time of things, and thinks that if Benitez looks into the Championship, he might well find the sort of players he needs to add that quality to his squad.

One such player who has been catching the eye this season is Aston Villa midfielder Robert Snodgrass, who is enjoying an excellent spell away from West Ham and has become a key cog in the Villa promotion push under Steve Bruce.

However, no summer deal is yet sealed, and Snodgrass clearly has the ability to play in the top flight, and seems to thrive under big atmospheres, meaning St James’ Park could be the perfect destination for the Scottish winger.

Snodgrass is classy on the ball, is excellent on dead balls, and has a keen eye for goal, all attributes which Newcastle and Benitez could use going into next season. If Benitez can convince Snodgrass to turn his back on Villa and move up the North East, then the Toon would have an excellent new player on their hands.

Toon Army, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
