Newcastle United hoping to secure deal for highly-rated starlet

West Bromwich Albion v Newcastle United - Barclays Premier LeagueNewcastle United currently occupy the position second bottom in the Premier League and the Geordie punters in the Transfer Tavern are getting restless already.

Some news that has emerged today in the national rags will at least assure them that the club’s hierarchy have the future at the heart of their plans.

According to Sports Mole, Newcastle are set to enter a five-way battle for the services of Newport County youngster Aaron Collins.

The player has scored two goals in as many games this season and has been scouted by the Magpies on numerous occasions according to reports.

Welshman Collins is barely old enough to have a pint of the landlord’s finest bitter in the Tavern and at just 18-years-old, big things are expected of him.

The Tavern had some Newport County supporting Welshman in on Saturday hoping to catch the Wales v England rugby game and they said that it would be a shame for the Exiles to lose such a talent when his development would be better served at Rodney Parade.

Newport fans… Surely you wouldn’t want to lose Collins so early in his career? Would a loan back to the Exiles suit you maybe? Newcastle fans… What do you know about the youngster?
