Newcastle eyeing return for former player with international experience

Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern want to see some signings to bolster their title challenge and, according to Chronicle Live, a return for Andros Townsend could be on the cards.

The Magpies are going well this season in the Championship and look set to battle it out with Brighton for the title.

They cannot rest on their laurels with the likes of Leeds looking to get into the mix, though, and our landlord reckons the signing of Townsend could just prove enough.

The winger joined Crystal Palace from the north east side in the summer but has struggled to settle in – much to the surprise of our local Eagles.

He could then be set for a pretty much instant return to St. James’ Park with the idea that he’d join on loan at first with a view to a permanent deal in the summer.

Townsend’s career has not gone how many had thought with him once a genuine England international and so should he drop down he’ll be looking to rebuild his career as soon as possible and earn promotion.

Would you be happy to take Townsend back, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
