Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to seeing how their side does in the Premier League in 2017/18 with them returning after a year away.
Indeed, there has been plenty of change at the club in terms of playing staff since the 2015/16 season and our local Magpies are looking forward to seeing just how the new faces handle the top flight pressure.
Of course, we should expect further additions throughout the summer window at the club and it appears that the chase for Pepe Reina is going to be one that keeps us on our toes throughout the market.
Indeed, according to Rai – via TalkSport – the Napoli man has rejected the offer to extend his contract with the Naples side in a big boost to the Magpies’ chances.
Certainly, then, the men from St. James’ Park might feel they now have the upper hand in trying to sign the Spanish stopper and with Rafa Benitez obviously liking him, we could still see this one go through.
Ultimately, then, this is a deal that looks to be hanging in the balance right now and one we’re looking forward to seeing resolved here in the bar.
