There isn’t much to moan about for Newcastle United right now and the punters in the Transfer Tavern can’t believe.
Three wins on the bounce have seemingly coming out of nowhere and our resident Geordies have a couple of men to thank for that. Indeed, Rafa Benitez’s name continues to be sung both often and loudly by our punters clad in black and white, along with Jamaal Lascelles’.
The latter has bagged two goals in two games amid this impressive run of form and a line from his interview with the Daily Telegraph should really excite the Toon Army.
Within Luke Edwards’ interview with the 23-year-old, it’s claimed the club are ‘close’ to tying the former Nottingham Forest defender down to a new deal. That’s previously been reported, though things have gone a little quiet on that front, so this update is definitely a positive one.
As you can imagine, ahead of a big game with Brighton this weekend, the punters propping up our bar are absolutely delighted.
Having previously been linked to Chelsea, Newcastle United could do with sorting out Lascelles’ future.
While he’s a long way off moving to a club of that stature, a talented young and English central defender is barely the most common thing about right now.
