The Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern are somewhat frustrated about the way their summer has panned out thus far.
While Rafa Benitez remains in charge, the Magpies have only really been able to add Florian Lejune to their squad, along with the permanent addition of last season’s loan star, Christian Atsu.
Though the Toon Army have been linked with a whole host of players across the footballing globe, it seems there is a transfer impasse on Tyneside right now. Indeed, the club looked to have missed out on another reported target.
Now, the Baggies are undoubtedly an established Premier League side, though many of our local Magpies cannot understand why Newcastle aren’t going in for the left-back, who operates in a problem position for the Toon.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Newcastle fans reacted on Twitter to Gibbs’ likely West Brom move.
Charnley out! We can't allow West Brom to get Gibbs! #NUFC

Please don't let Gibbs go to West Brom #NUFC

Couldn't we have spent that money on buying a decent LB in Gibbs? Murphy I'm afraid is championship standard #NUFC

Dear me Kieran Gibbs to WBA for £12m. Why aren't we in for him? #nufc

£12 million is a brilliant price for Gibbs! Wish #nufc were on that!
