It’s set to be a tough old season for Newcastle United back in the Premier League but the Magpies fans lining the bar here in the Tavern are hopeful Rafa Benitez can keep them in the top flight at the first attempt!
The Magpies are back in the big-time after their Championship title win last season, as they avoided doing an Aston Villa by returning to the top tier at the first attempt.
The club have already signed former loanee Christian Atsu and defender Florian Lejeune from Eibar but that’s not going to be enough if the club are to secure their survival in the league.
And according to the Daily Mail, the Magpies are set to go head-to-head with Stoke City in an attempt to bring Manchester City midfielder Fabien Delph to St James’ Park.
The former Aston Villa favourite has struggled for game-time since his move to the Etihad and with Pep Guardiola moving to the club, the Englishman has slipped even further down the pecking order.
There’s thought that Stoke are keen on making a move for his services too, so this could turn into a real transfer tug-of-war between two sides that are hoping for strong finishes next season.
Newcastle fans- would this be a decent bit of business? Leave your thoughts down below!
