Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are a little concerned they haven’t signed anyone this month but, according to Chronicle Live, that could change soon.
The Magpies are embroiled in quite the title scrap with Brighton at the top of the Championship this season and you’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t think one of those two will win it.
Whatever edge one can get over the other is going to be crucial, then, and it appears the Magpies see their former winger Andros Townsend as the answer.
Chronicle Live believes that the Magpies are going to up their efforts to bring Townsend back to the club in the coming days after he joined Crystal Palace last summer.
Things haven’t quite worked out for him at Selhurst Park up until now, though, and so a move back to St. James’ could mark an upturn in fortunes for him.
Certainly, our landlord believes his quality could give Newcastle the advantage in the title race and so they should do all they can to bring him in.
Happy to take Townsend back, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
