The £3.60m-rated attacker who’d help Rafa Benitez at Newcastle United

The Newcastle United fans down in the Transfer Tavern are demanding Mike Ashley digs into his pockets.

The supporters’ irritant mood as a result of the club’s lack of summer business have only been heightened after Newcastle were dispatched by Tottenham on the opening day.

Rafa Benitez side were let down by stand-in skipper Jonjo Shelvey after his moment of petulance saw him sent off for treading on Spurs’ Dele Alli.

The Magpies have recently signed centre-forward Joselu from Stoke, but whether Benitez will welcome anyone else remains to be seen.

One player who has been reinvented since leaving the Premier League last summer is Celtic’s Scott Sinclair.

The forward showed superb form for Brendan Rodgers’ side last campaign as they completed the entire SPL season without losing a game.

Sinclair netted 22 goals in 37 league games in Scotland and could well be on fringes of an England call up. His latest strikes have helped seal the Hoops qualification for the Champions League group stages.

The former Swansea star excelled in the south of Wales prior to his big money move to Man City in 2012. However, the 27-year-old was handed just 13 appearances for the Citizens in three years resulting in a tragic loss of form and confidence.

Under Rodgers, Sinclair has flourished (though still rated at £3.60m on Transfermarkt)  and the belief he now possesses could see him return to the force he was with Swansea.

The Englishman is more than capable of becoming a mainstay at Newcastle, who are severely lacking in attacking threat.
