Newcastle handed transfer boost ahead of potential Premier League promotion

Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are trying to remain as positive as possible at the moment as they head towards the end of the season in the Championship.

The Magpies had been the favourites to come up this season but it really does look as though that Brighton are going to win the title instead.

The men from St. James’, then, need to stop their wobble and just get promoted with Huddersfield and the rest of the sides in the play-offs lurking just behind.

Should they go up, then, transfers will be expected and, as per The Daily Mail, their chase for Ryan Shawcross appears to have been handed a boost.

The Stoke defender is a Newcastle target and is apparently thinking about moving away from the Bet365 Stadium at the end of this season.

The centre-half has been a big part of what the Potters have done in the Premier League but could now want a new challenge and keeping the Magpies in the top flight – should they get promoted – would certainly represent that.

Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
