Newcastle fans drinking at the Tavern today are breathing a sigh of relief, as new signings are finally making their way to the club.
It has been confirmed this week that Rafa Benitez has completed the signing of French defender, Florian Lejeune with long-term new deals for two more defenders, Jamaal Lascelles and Paul Dummett to be finalised later this week.
It has been quite a slow summer for Benitez, who is clearly hoping to get more deals done by the end of the summer window. The Magpies need squad depth, and they need to strengthen a couple of areas in the first-team if they are going to remain a Premier League side come the end of the season.
Whilst Newcastle don’t have the budget that a lot of Premier League sides have, they do have a manager that can draw in players and with that being said, here are TWO deals Benitez should sort out as soon as possible.
