The Magpies are in desperate need of some reinforcements this summer after flirting with the possibility of relegation at times in the last campaign, with many of our local northerners hoping for a number of impressive summer signings. And, it looks as if Newcastle are already making great strides in bringing a central defender to St James’ Park, as according to the Scottish Sun, Newcastle representatives have jetted out to Turkey in the hope of thrashing out a deal for Martin Skrtel.
Interestingly, it’s understood that Newcastle representatives have jetted out to Turkey in the hope of thrashing out a deal with the Istanbul outfit.
