Newcastle United could be about to add a defensive talent to their side as the transfer deadline fast approaches.
Fernandez is thought to have wanted to make a quick return to the Premier League, whilst Newcastle are keen to add defensive reinforcements to their side.
The Magpies are currently short of centre-backs and Rafa Benitez was keen to add the man that he previously had with him at Napoli.
Fernandez could become a very good addition for the club this summer, as Newcastle look to add reinforcements.
The centre-back will be able to offer Benitez’s side experience, having spent the last three years with Swansea in the top-flight.
Fernandez will look to join Fabian Schar at the club as a new recruit this summer and will be looking to make an immediate impact, as they look to compete with for a spot alongside Jamaal Lascelles.
