Yesterday was a day of celebration for the Liverpool fans dancing on the pool tables in the Transfer Tavern as the Reds sealed a return to the Champions League.
On what was a wonderful day at Anfield, it could also have been a farewell to England international Daniel Sturridge. Though the 27-year-old’s struggles with injury over the last few years have been well-documented, few would doubt his goalscoring prowess hasn’t been a welcome sight on Merseyside.
Still, despite the obvious talent he boasts, reports from the Newcastle Evening Chronicle suggest he may be offered a route out of the Kop. They suggest it’s believed that the Reds will offer Sturridge to newly-promoted Newcastle United this summer.
The Toon Army are understood to be on the lookout for a top level marksman this summer in order to mark their return to the English elite and the local Kopites in the bar have been waxing poetic about just how good Sturridge is. When he’s fit, of course.
Our resident Magpies, meanwhile, aren’t convinced he’d be worth it.
