Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are still confident their side is going to get promoted back to the Premier League this season – even if they are making a right mess of it so far.
Indeed, despite being the favourites for the title at the start of the season and boasting a strong squad and top manager, the men from the north east are struggling to get over the line and back into the top flight.
They’ll still be expecting to go up, though, and from there sign some players that will ensure they stay in the Premier League for a while.
Indeed, according to the printed version of today’s Mirror (via HITC,) the Magpies are looking at Arsenal’s Carl Jenkinson with the defender sorely out of favour at the moment with the Gunners.
Certainly, the right back would surely jump at the chance to get some first team football at a club like Newcastle and our landlord reckons that this could be a deal that works for all involved – if it happens.
Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
