Report: Benitez making the right moves with transfer talks underway

Newcastle United fans here in the Tavern will be feeling rather confident as they head into the new season, with aims of pushing for a European place. 

Rafa Benitez has worked wonders at St James’ Park over the past couple of years, but supporters will want to see improvements on the transfer front after a disappointing January. And, it looks like the Magpies are beginning to show signs of improvement, as according to Sun Sport, Newcastle are in talks to buy back Andros Townsend from Crystal Palace for £18 million.

So, it looks as if Andros Townsend is set to return to St James’ Park this summer, with Newcastle currently in talks to secure the Englishman’s services.

Benitez was impressed with the tricky winger’s first spell on Tyneside when he arrived from Spurs, and Townsend has insisted he loved his time in the North East which has opened the door for his return.

And, with Matt Ritchie heading to Stoke City, Towsend will be drafted in as a direct replacement.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Newcastle United supporters will be delighted that their side are beginning to make the right moves on the transfer front, as Matt Ritchie is heading out of the exits and Kenedy has returned to his parent club, so they desperately needed to bring in a tricky winger to provide creativity and pace in the final third.
