Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern haven’t had much to celebrate this season and the recent injury to Tim Krul, which ruled the Dutchman out for the remainder of the season, has left a dark cloud over the club.
However it appears Steve McClaren and his side have a plan of action ready to counteract this disappointing news, as the Daily Star suggests the Magpies will swoop for Manchester United misfit Victor Valdes.
The Spaniard is set to leave Old Trafford despite only joining in January after enduring a massive fall-out with United boss Louis Van Gaal, which cannot be fixed.
Chelsea and Liverpool have also been linked with Valdes but Van Gaal is not prepared to sell to a rival club, and would prefer the former Barcelona stopper to move abroad, but he may be willing to let Valdes join a struggling Newcastle outfit.
Newcastle fans, would a deal for Victor Valdes be good for you? Let us know in the comments below!
