Newcastle have made a steady enough start to life back in the Premier League as Rafa Benitez has steadied the ship and guided them into mid-table so far in the table.
The Toon Army here in the Tavern have thus far been happy enough with how things have been panning out, and can’t really have many complaints following a disappointing summer overall in the transfer market.
The Magpies though will be looking to add new faces in January no doubt, and one player our landlord here thinks could do an excellent job and have a bright future is Nottingham Forest starlet Ben Brereton.
The teenager has looked every bit the future star in his appearances for Forest so far, hitting the back of the net on three occasions and playing himself into being a first-team regular for the Reds under Mark Warburton.
His ability with the ball for someone so young is frightening, and his value should only continue to sky rocket if he continues to live up to his potential at the City Ground.
With Newcastle possessing Premier League riches but not quite those seen in the upper echelons of the table, the signing of someone like Brereton would be the ideal coup, adding further quality and depth to a forward department what is somewhat lacking at St James’.
He would not come cheap, but wouldn’t break the bank, and could prove an excellent long term addition for the club.
Newcastle fans, what do you make of Brereton? Let us know!Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
