Our Newcastle United fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait to see what their side do in the summer because things are almost certainly going to be geared towards a Premier League campaign.
The Magpies have been going along nicely this season under Rafa Benitez and there is every chance that they will be in the top flight next season.
Indeed, automatic promotion would mean that the club are surely going to spend in the summer window and it appears, according to The Independent, that Ryan Shawcross is going to be a part of a potential deal with the St. James’ outfit.
The Stoke City defender is a firmly established Premier League name now, and would certainly help bolster Newcastle’s back-line as they look to adapt quickly to being back in the top flight.
He’s no nonsense and a leader at the back, and the Magpies would surely benefit from him working with a manager like Rafa Benitez who is so defensively minded anyway.
Thoughts on this one, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
