Playmaker eyed as Benitez looks to bring 27-year-old to Newcastle United this summer

Newcastle United are looking to strengthen their team as they look to have sealed top-flight football for another year and fans in the Transfer Tavern will be raising a glass if they can sign a reported transfer target.

Rafa Benitez is thought to be prepared to make another offer for Fulham ace Tom Cairney, having been turned down during the January transfer window. The Sun is claiming that the Toon Army will need to make a bid of over £20million to lure the Craven Cottage skipper away from London.

The Scotland international has been impressive in the Championship and has been key to Slavisa Jokanovic’s sides efforts to push for promotion to the Premier League, attracting the interest of Leicester City in the process.

The 27-year-old is in contention to be named the player of the season for the division and if Fulham does not get promoted, Benitez and the locals will be liking their chances of getting a deal done to bring him to St James’ Park.

Landlord’s Verdict

The Newcastle fans in the Tavern will be excited by the news to bring Cairney to the north-east and will be urging the club to make a deal happen. The Scotland international has been continuously impressed with the Cottagers and would strengthen the Magpies instantly.
