Newcastle fans on Twitter have little faith in swooping for Ligue 1 right-back

Newcastle fans hate the transfer window. For them, it’s nothing more than a grim period of time where they find themselves being linked to players, getting their hopes up and then being let down by Mike Ashley. This January is no different, and the Magpies have little faith in these reports from France Football surrounding a new right-back.

The reports claim that the Geordies are interested in signing both Kenny Lala and Valentin Rosier from Strasbourg and FCO Dijon, however, with both of the defenders in fine form this season and, the chances are the Geordies won’t be able to stump up the required fee to bring either of the pair in, let alone both of them, as they continue their hunt for new defenders.

At the moment, the only right-backs that the Magpies have under Rafa Benitez are DeAndre Yedlin and Javier Manquillo. Whilst the former is a brilliant option who has proved his worth on a number of occasions, Manquillo is godawful and the fans would love to see their side bring in either Lala or Rosier to see the Spaniard forced out.

Most of the Newcastle fans are already of the opinion that they won’t be signing anyone, and they’ll be hoping their club can do something to prove them wrong.
