Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see the kind of squad Rafa Benitez manages to put together for their assault on the Premier League this season coming.
The Magpies are back in the top flight after a top season in the Championship and now the onus is on them to make sure they stay put for the foreseeable future.
For sure, then, new signings are going to be a must in that regard whilst it also appears as though Siem De Jong wants to act like a new signing and have one more chance with the club – as per Lee Ryder on Twitter:

For sure, then, the striker would surely only have one more crack of the whip on Tyneside in what has been a frustrating time there so far and fans have certainly reacted to the news:
Unfortunatley as Siem was reading this article he papercut his finger on newspaper and is out for 2 months as infected and now has gangrene

I wish we could have had a fit De Jong for 2 seasons, when he was fit in the Dutch league he was very very good. Will it ever happen?

Let the lad try, 1 more season, give him nothing games and rotate him in and see what happens

I think he can prove his worth and impress Rafa in. pre-season if he can stay fit.

If he stays fit he could be a big player this year…

Despite his recent troubles I’m still a big fan. Very talented player, not quick but he kit knows where he needs to be. Can’t teach that
