Newcastle linked with signing of 25-year-old star

Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see who their side signs in the summer transfer window as they plan for their return to the Premier League.

For sure, the general consensus is that the club seriously needs to sign some more players if they are to compete properly in the top flight next season.

But, with Rafa Benitez in charge, signing those players shouldn’t prove as arduous as it might do otherwise.

The Magpies, then, are going to be linked with plenty of names and it appears – according to Chronicle Live – that Andros Townsend is of interest.

The winger enjoyed a good end to the season for Crystal Palace in 2016/17 but is a favourite of the Newcastle fans by the bar who believe they could tempt him away thanks to Sam Allardyce leaving Selhurst Park.

Time, then, will ultimately tell with this one but we might just see the former Tottenham man return to Tyneside during the summer window.

Thoughts, Palace fans? Let us know below!
