Newcastle United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hopeful that their team can avoid relegation to the Championship this season with the side currently embroiled in a real dog-fight towards the bottom of the table.
Boss Steve McClaren has been active so far in the transfer window and has already recruited Jonjo Shelvey from Swansea City and Henri Saivet from Ligue 1 outfit Bordeaux.
A Magpies supporter present in the Tavern is waiting for the landlord to change one of the barrels when he spots an article being run by The Sun, which has the Magpies down as the front runners in the hunt for Spurs winger Andros Townsend.
The England international is out of favour with the North London-based club and could be set to depart north for St James’ Park.
The landlord here in the Tavern thinks it would be a great signing for the Toon Army and believes the club will get back on the right track if they continue recruiting proven Premier League players.
Newcastle fans… Would you welcome Townsend to the club? Let us know in the comments below!
