Newcastle installed as favourites to sign PL star as they bid to kick-start campaign

Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see their side sign a fair few players between now and the end of the transfer window in just over a week.

The Magpies had been looking forward to this season but the growing concern about a lack of transfer activity has really come to a head after the club lost again at the weekend.

Indeed, many are suggesting that the club could go straight back down into the Championship if they do not add some quality Premier League players before September.

Who comes in, though, remains to be seen but, according to Sky Bet, they are at least the favourites to sign Robert Snodgrass from West Ham.

The Scottish international has been told that he can leave the Hammers this summer and he’d surely like the idea of helping a Newcastle side that really needs some fresh impetus.

Whether or not the Magpies actually make a bid, though, remains to be seen with the club clearly making a mess of things in the market this year.

Landlord’s Verdict

Newcastle should have been the side to watch of the promoted teams this year but they simply have not done what they needed to in the market.

Indeed, you can see the disappointment in Rafa Benitez’s face and now it remains to be seen if they can turn around with such a short amount of time left.

Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
