Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are certainly excited about how their team is going to perform in the transfer market now that it is open for business.
The Magpies are back in the Premier League for 2017/18 and our landlord really does think that of all the promoted sides from the Championship, it is the Tyneside club best placed to stay up.
Of course, that does not mean that the club can rest on its laurels and so it will be interesting to see who Rafa Benitez manages to bring in.
It appears, though, that he has been offered a boost in the chase for Florian Lejeune – as per Lee Ryder on Twitter who reports:
Eibar sporting director Fran Garagarza: “I’m not very optimistic, I see it difficult for Lejeune to stay.” #nufc

Newcastle, then, seem to have been given some encouragement over the Eibar man and now it remains to be seen if they can capitalise on that.
Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
