The Newcastle United fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports regarding their managers preferred transfer policy this summer.
According to the Chronicle, Rafael Benitez is set to look at buying British players this summer as he looks to build a squad capable of an instant return to the Premier League next season.
The club have been linked with the likes of Ross McCormack and Matt Ritchie this summer, as well as being offered Crystal Palace striker Dwight Gayle’s services, as the Spaniard looks for players with the right mentality for a promotion push in the upcoming season.
Balance is what is required for the North East giants as they are to compete in the Championship for the first time in six years.
Any players that are brought in will have to be able to gel with the likes of Karl Darlow, Andros Townsend, Jack Colback and Jamal Lascelles who will all play important roles in the club’s bid for a instant Premier League return.
After previously raiding the French market, the Toon Army look set to return to a British core in an attempt to restore their Premier League status.
