Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern really feel that the Championship title is theirs to lose now and they’re hoping for a return to the big-time imminently.
Indeed, now five points clear, the Magpies are starting to pull away from the chasing pack after impressive wins against both Brighton and Huddersfield recently.
What the club need to do in the summer, should all things go to plan, is build a squad capable of performing well in the Premier League.
It appears that is already on Rafa Benitez’s mind, too, with The Sun claiming that Harry Maguire is a target for the former Liverpool boss.
The Hull City defender has been a class act this season for the way he has played and has looked well at home in the top flight.
He’s been one of the Tigers’ stand out players, then, but it looks like that will not be enough to keep them up at the moment.
That could be Newcastle’s gain, though, and our landlord reckons should they sign Maguire that would indicate a very good step forward for the men from the north-east.
Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
