Newcastle tracking 27-year-old Premier League star

Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to the summer window opening as they can’t wait to see who comes into the club.

The Magpies have been in fine form this season and will now be looking to build on their squad in order to make a real go of things in the Premier League.

Indeed, there’s been plenty of names getting touted around at the moment and one of those is Burnley striker Ashley Barnes – as per ESPNFC.

The industrious forward has proven a real handful for top division defences this season and could be a shrewd move from the Magpies as they look to bolster their squad.

Barnes knows from this season what it takes to stay in the division and would also be an option up top for the club with Dwight Gayle struggling at times with injury in 2016/17.

For sure, then, this could be a potential deal to look out for in the summer.

Thoughts, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
