Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see who their side manages to sign in the summer as they plot for their return to the Premier League.
The Magpies are back in the top flight after a one year spell away in the Championship and now the hard work for Rafa Benitez begins in terms of forming a squad good enough to take on the best in the country.
Who he signs over the coming months, then, remains to be seen but we reckon that John Terry would be an ideal signing for the Magpies.
Indeed, Terry is now looking for a new club after leaving Chelsea and for a man of his experience and still considerable ability, it shouldn’t be too hard for him to find a new side.
For Newcastle, then, there’s likely to be competition if they go for him but it would certainly be a deal that would benefit them for the new season.
Of course, they have talented defenders in Ciaran Clark and Jamaal Lascelles but neither boasts anywhere near the experience that Terry has in the Premier League.
And, all things considered, it’s experience that sees sides stay up in the top flight – the aim Newcastle must achieve before thinking about anything else in 2017/18.
The Magpies, then, must consider signing Terry.
They have the reputation big enough to boast such a name in the English game whilst they also have the need for a man of his vast experience.
