Newcastle relaxed despite latest player setback to emerge

Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are really looking forward to seeing who their side is going to sign once the transfer window opens up for business.

The men from the north east are back in the Premier League for 2017/18 and our landlord thinks they are the best placed of all the Championship sides to have come up in terms of getting new faces in.

Of course, it remains to be seen who does come in but some think a new goalkeeper might be needed, particularly with Rob Elliot getting injured again.

He missed a lot of the season last time out thanks to fitness problems and once again has received a setback – though Newcastle, according to Chronicle Live, are not as worried as they might be.

Indeed, it is more him feeling the impact still of his lengthy spell out and he could still feature in the Republic of Ireland’s internationals next month.

Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
