Championship

Newcastle eyeing talented midfield purchase ahead of title run-in

Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern want to see their club sign some players ready for the rest of the title race this season and, according to Chronicle Live, they might be about to with Tom Cairney.

The Magpies are currently duelling it out with Brighton at the top of the division in the Championship but know that the likes of Reading and Leeds United will be all too keen to pounce on any slip ups.

Having a squad capable of challenging is vital, then, and it looks like Rafael Benitez wants to bring in the Fulham midfielder to help aid that.

Cairney has impressed this season with his displays in the middle of the park for the London club and also has experience with the likes of Hull City before that.

The Magpies already have a wealth of midfield talent available to them but if they can get Cairney in to bolster the likes of Jonjo Shelvey then our landlord reckons they’ll be hard to stop for the rest of this campaign.

Would you take Cairney, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
