Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see their side playing football back in the Premier League next season with it now just a summer away from happening.
The Magpies have had a top season and now the hard work starts for Rafa Benitez and his staff as they look to put together a squad good enough for the top flight.
Who comes in during the summer window, then, remains to be seen but it appears as though Peter Beardsley would like one young player to make the step up from one of the younger Magpies teams.
Indeed, as quoted by Chronicle Live, the club legend and coach said:
“I would recommend he stays for another year. That would be my opinion.
“We like him and love everything about him.”
A ringing endorsement for Heardman then from a man who more than knows what it takes to excel at the very highest level.
The plan, then, must be for Heardman to try and repay the faith Beardsley has put into him next season should he indeed be offered a new deal for the new campaign.
Thoughts on this, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
