‘No thanks’ – Newcastle United fans react with club linked with move for England man

The Newcastle fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to a story in The Sun linking them with Southampton and England left-back Ryan Bertrand. The 28-year-old former Chelsea man has been one of Southampton’s best players since he signed for the south coast club although if the club are relegated this season a number of big hitting Premier League clubs could be in for the player who commands a £25 million price tag.

The experienced full-back who started for Chelsea in the 2012 Champions League final looks set to start for England in summer at the World Cup in Russia and would be a great addition to a number of clubs this summer if the Saints are to be relegated from the Premier League. Tottenham, Manchester United and Everton are all reportedly set to rival Rafa Benitez’ Newcastle for the defender’s signature. More options could be on the table for Bertrand if he impresses this summer on the left-hand side of England’s back line.

Newcastle United currently have Paul Dummett and Javier Manquillo contesting the left-back spot at St James Park, although if Bertrand was to join the Magpies he’d slot in as their left-sided full-back without too many issues. The defender has really come into his own over the last couple of years, amassing 19 caps for his country and scoring his first goal in a 4-0 away win against Malta last September.
