Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see who their club signs in the summer window as they return to the Premier League.
Indeed, it is where all the Magpies here in the bar wanted to be and now they have achieved it the hard work begins for Rafa Benitez in terms of identifying and signing targets.
The rumours, then, are going to really start kicking in and it seems as though the big names are starting to be linked with the club with The Sun claiming that the Ivorian midfielder Yaya Toure is of interest to the Tynesiders.
A Premier League winner, Toure’s reputation and ability needs no introduction but he is approaching the final weeks of his current deal with no new agreement sorted out.
He could, then, be planning for a move away and Newcastle would certainly represent a brand new challenge for him.
Whether or not the Magpies could afford his wages is another debate to be had but at the moment Magpies fans are just enjoying this potential deal being touted.
Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
