Following the signings of Jacob Murphy and Javier Manquillo, the Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern are optimistic the club are finally gaining some momentum on the market front.
Indeed, while most of the summer proved rather frustrating for the Toon Army, our resident Geordies now believe Rafa Benitez will be backed when it comes to strengthening his squad ahead of the upcoming Premier League campaign.
The latest rumour to enter their frame of thinking centres around a potential raid on Hull City. A move for midfielder Sam Clucas has been touted of late, with the 26-year-old proving impressive despite the Tigers’ relegation last term.
While he may not instantly strike as the most glamorous of names, the midfielder could be an astute addition, with the Magpies reportedly readying a £4m offer to take him away from Humberside.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Newcastle United fans reacted on Twitter.
Upgrade on jack colback. But rafa wants him so……..

Clucas for £4m would be a decent signing if it means the end of Colback.

I see we're linked with Clucas, McCarthy, Ojo, Gulasci + Adrian plus Reina in the mix again. Yet Rafa says we have too many! #nufc

#NUFC linked with Sam Clucas. He impressed me last season – got the gift of being in the right place at the right time. Squad player, mind.

Clucas for 4 million? Yeah I'd take that in this market. #nufc

To be fair Clucas for £4million would be a cracking piece of business, my only worry is are we really building a Premier League team…#NUFC
