Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see who Rafa Benitez is going to sign this summer ahead of a Premier League return.
The Magpies are back in the big time after a season away and many are expecting the Spanish manager to splash the cash to ensure they make a real go of the top flight.
Who comes in, then, remains to be seen over the coming months but it appears as though Tammy Abraham could be on his way on a loan deal.
The Chelsea owned striker shone in the Championship for Bristol City in 2016/17 and it now looks as though the Magpies are going to offer him a step up and the chance to play in the top flight.
Indeed, Lee Ryder has revealed that a deal could be agreed very soon and so, in light of this, fans have reacted quickly:
#nufc hoping for a successful outcome on Tammy Abraham talks in next 48 hours. More to follow.

Just like Lukaku when he was loaned to West Brom or Rashford last season ?! They’ve got to start somewhere and he’s class !!!

We should bring much better than what we’ve got not worse
